The Polish Literature Club is a new book club in Seattle for people who’d like to read and discuss Polish literature in English (yes!), organized by indomitable Paulina Phung. The book to discuss at this meeting is Ashes and Diamonds by Jerzy Andrzejewski, a controversial 1948 book about moral dilemmas of anti-communist resistance in 1945 Poland that was made into the world famous movie by Andrzej Wajda in 1958. Andrzejewski (1909-1983) was one of the writers skewered in Czeslaw Milosz’s Captive Mind as a supporter of the regime; he later left the party and became a dissident. The book is available on Amazon.
