|Pełny tekst / full text|
...The subject of the article is on proscription literature, otherwise known as the Soviet labour-camp
literature, legally inaccessible in the country until the political transformation in 1989, but published
in exile. Widely reviewed in the Polish press in exile, sometimes in the western press, being a link
between compatriots in exile and home country, yet it is written in the current Polish literature trend.
Maria Danielewicz-Zielińska ascertained that concerning the problem of matyrdom of Poles in the
Soviet Union during the second World War numerous multilingual literature developed, dating back
from early 1941 and prevailing to the present time. The herald of this literature were reports, written
just after liberation, in Polish military camps, by the initiative of General Anders, such as: Władysław
Anders, The Katyn crime in light of documents (London 1948) or from the same author – Recalling the
years 1939-1946 (London 1983). Other recollections mentioned in the publication include among others,: Anatola Krakowski's "Book on Kołym" (London 1948), irene Wasilewska's reportage "For guilt-lessness" (Rome 1945), Veronica Hort (Hanka Ordonówna) Emigrant children (Beirut 1948), Włacław
Grubiński Between the Hammer and the sickle (London 1948), Joseph Czapski Recollections of old
Bielsko (Rome 1945), On an inhuman earth (Paris 1949) as well as The mystery of Katyn (Bombay
1946), Herlinga-Grudziński A different world. Soviet notes (London 1949).
