In a brief life traumatically disrupted by two years in concentration camps as a political prisoner, Tadeusz Borowski (1922-51) was destined to becomeone of the most eloquent witnesses to the Holocaust in Poland. His recollections & stories, the most famous of which is 'This Way for the Gas, Ladies & Gentlemen,' document in stark historical, literary, & personal terms the experience of the camps & their cost to humanity. Borowski's correspondence, collected here for the first time in English, continues these themes, providing insights into his published work & the world of letters he inhabited.
