| Book Description: |
The book is a study of references to Poles, Poland and Polishness in Jewish-American fiction created after World War II. The analysis of seventy novels reveals portrayals of Poles as secondary or unimportant characters then and now. The perception of Poland indicates the Holocaust’s overwhelming impact on its conceptualization as the land of death.
