Tomasz Gąsowski

Liverpool University Press

This chapter highlights four review essays. It looks at a debate between Tomasz Gąsowski and the late Artur Eisenbach on the latter's book on Jewish emancipation in Poland. Eisenbach's reply represents probably his last publication. Meanwhile, Chone Shmeruk reviews two books on Isaac Bashevis Singer. Singer's years in Poland up to 1935 remained throughout his life the basis for his work; his departure from Poland took him to a personal diaspora. To the end, he was immersed thematically in the history, day-to-day experience, and way of life of the Jewish community in Poland. Finally, Nechama Tec reviews several books on Auschwitz. As the biggest death factory and a huge labour camp complex, Auschwitz became the centre of human destruction and degradation. From 1940 to 1945, like a powerful spider, Auschwitz relentlessly wove an ever-larger web over German society and German institutions.
