Stramerowie

Mikołaj Łoziński


Keynote


The continuation of the compelling saga –
the wartime and post-war fate of members
of the Stramer family: middle-class Jewish
residents of Tarnów.


Selling Points
 A continuation of this novel saga,
which has been wonderfully received and
nominated for the most important Polish
literary awards.
 The Second World War told from
multiple perspectives, taking into
consideration difficult and terrifying
everyday life.
 Each of the Stramer siblings represents
a different viewpoint and attitude towards
the Nazi and Soviet occupying forces,
thanks to which the novel is a political and
ideological map of ideas about the wartime
and postwar reality of Poland and Europe.
 A novel written with epic flourish,
with numerous interwoven threads and
characters, which is unputdownable from
the first pages.
 It includes plotlines which seldom
appear in the Polish historical memory –
e.g. the role and significance of Polish
soldiers fighting on the side of the Red
Army.
 A multidimensional social portrait of
the Jewish community living in Poland
before and after World War Two.

The author has won several important
awards, including the Award of
the Kościelski Foundation and the Polityka
Passport award, he has also been
nominated twice for the Nike Literary
Award.


Description
The beginnings of the Second World War –
the winds of history have dispersed the six
siblings of the Stramer family throughout
Europe. Some of them ended up in
occupied Warsaw and Krakow, and others
in the remote, Asiatic part of Russia. Each
in their own way tries to survive the hell of
war. They work in factories controlled by
Germans, are underground activists, join
Polish units being formed in the Soviet
Union, constantly balancing on the border
of life and death. Will they all manage to
survive this dramatic time?
Once again, Łoziński invites readers to
follow the fates of the Jewish Stramer
family, simultaneously scrupulously
reconstructing the reality of occupied
Poland, and also the new, postwar order
of the emerging Polish communist state.
The story of the Stramers is a panorama of
the history of Central Europe written with
an epic flourish.
