The stories are painful, not only because of the portrayal of atrociti How do you write about the Holocaust? This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen, also known zaprassam Ladies and Gentlemen, to the Gas Chamber, is a collection of short stories by Tadeusz Borowskiwhich were inspired by the author’s concentration camp experience. InBorowski’s mother was released and returned to Poland.

But their fate was to exist very temporarily, for a year or 18 months, then to be bulldozed, and for the ground to be ploughed, and tilled, and for a farmhouse to be built and a family installed there who were to say they had farmed the land of Belzec for generations. We are laying the foundation for some new, monstrous civilization.

So I decided to have a go at reading Borowski’s stories after all, before listening to the next chapter, about zapaszam.

I loved the way it was told and the way Borowski wrote and I do like the translation as well. In Borowski finished his secondary schooling in a secret underground lyceum in Nazi-occupied Poland, and then began studies at the underground Warsaw University Polish language and literature. This puts the reader in the position of smiling at and cringing at one and the same time.

But it can die any moment! To get there, they often had to be active participants in the brutality of the system after being socialized into a total disregard for the suffering of weaker or less-fortunate others. Not like Joyce or Proust or Faulkner, but because — when exactly do you read this?


In another world, if Gqzu had completely made up these stories, we would call him a darkly mad genius, one of the most creative fiction writers of the 20th century.

Or maybe I a worrying about something. From working on the ramp as part of the Canada crew, he was then transferred to work as a roofer and saw with a birds eye view what went on below him. Suffering is not ennobling: These semi-autobiographical stories are incredibly difficult to read; the mind, at least the sane mind, jerks d from them like a panicked, rearing horse.

Aug 02, Greta rated it really ddo it Shelves: GIs, and the American values they embodied: Philip Roth in Portnoy’s Complaint showed that inured state of youth perfectly and in more entertaining fashion – but these days, suggesting in trivial tones that WWII might be tedious seems to be shocking to some conscientious, political Millenials and Gen Z, who are concerned about the alt-right, and who are too young to have grown up sick to the back teeth of all the jaw-jaw about the war.

Let’s get you and the children cleaned up, and then how about a thick bowl of steaming soup? His books are recognized as classics of Polish post-war literature and had much influence in Central European society. Maybe some chilled water and a salty tomato-onion salad instead. They feel increasingly that it is in no time zapraszma they too will be reduced to smoke and ash.

Both of them were the concentration camp prisoners There are many ways I could write a review for this book.

This strange zaprazzam of one man over another? It is almost over. But then, there are not much differences as the short stories are narrated in the first person and the narrator’s name is Tadek. It has a higher ratio of really brutal details than the average long newspaper article or TV documentary about concentration zaprazsam – attempts at cannibalism, people burnt alive, the necessary casualness of talking to an officer about filling a pond with human bones, and… I’m not going to be looking at a spade handle the same way in a hurry.


The prisoner who killed the other prisoner, the prisoner who stole ro food of the other starving prisoner, the prisoner who without a pinch of conscience pushed the other almost dead but living still prisoner inside the burning oven, the prisoner who was willing to eat the spilled brain of an executed prisoner shot in the neck in the public square – That is the way to survive.

This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen by Tadeusz Borowski

Both of them were the concentration camp prisoners and later the survivors. Perhaps the most memorable image in the book is of a game of football the narrator is playing while a transport arrives at the ramp. Inhe was liberated at Dachau. It is not a ridiculous reaction, either. Borowski, you feel, deliberately eschewed all temptation to make his material palatable, subject in any way to reason. They want the guilty to suffer unjustly too.

True horror is something that can only be swallowed in sips, lest we drown in its sorrow. One feels an instant revulsion for all this, for the idea that some prisoners were chowing down on bacon and potatoes while others starved, even though there is little sense in everyone starving together.

We need to remember that the companion to our capacity for genius and brilliance is an equal and opposite capacity for wanton brutality.
