This chapter concentrates on the author Henryk Grynberg, who belongs to a group of contemporary Jewish authors who were children during the war and resumed life in Poland after it. It recounts Grynberg's childhood and how he survived the war by hiding with his mother in the Polish countryside. It also mentions Grynberg's training in journalism and experience as an actor in the post-war Yiddish theatre, where he began to write. The chapter talks about how Grynberg found refuge in the United States in 1947 after he went under official censorship of his work. It demonstrates how Grynberg established his literary reputation with lightly fictionalized autobiography, written in Polish in the 1960s and 1970s, first of the perils of life in hiding under the German occupation and then of coming of age in the complex environment of post-war Poland.
