In a time of terror, what would you do?
For decades, it was believed the annihilation of the Jewish population of Jedwabne, Poland, in 1941 was a Nazi atrocity. The truth turned out to be even more shocking. In Our Class, which won a top Polish literary prize, Slobodzianek looks at the build-up to the massacre, the events themselves, and the impact on the lives of survivors, through the eyes of ten classmates, half Jewish and half Catholic. Our Class is a searing, open-minded look at the heart-breaking acts of cruelty and courage we can inflict on each other in the struggle to retain humanity under repression.
