This chapter examines Karin Wolff's invaluable and successful anthology of poetry and prose, entitled Hiob 1943. A Requiem for the Warsaw ghetto. The anthology contains 50 literary texts and accounts by authors of all ages, Poles and Polish Jews, including texts by people who did not manage to survive the war. There are also prominent pieces by universally acclaimed writers of the older and middle generation. Karin Wolff, a translator of great merit of Polish literature into German, a German in her middle age living in the German Democratic Republic, has contributed greatly to familiarizing East German readers with Polish writing on the experiences of Poles and Jews during the war and the occupation of 1939–1945. Her work was recognized and rewarded in 1981 when she was given the Polish Pen Club annual award for the most outstanding translator of works from Polish into another language.
