Synopsis :

This epic tells the story of a Polish Jewish family struggling against nearly insurmountable odds. In The Jewish War, the family of a young Jewish boy hides throughout the countryside until the father is murdered. To escape, the mother and boy use forged papers and adopt a false life as the Catholic family of an officer captured by the Germans. The Victory picks up the story as the Red Army advances and the boy fights to reclaim his Jewishness amidst the horrors of the past and the choices of an agonizing present.

From the Back Cover:

The Jewish War and The Victory are Henryk Grynberg's first two autobiographical novels on the Holocaust. The Jewish War is the epic tale of a family of provincial Polish Jews who struggle for survival against nearly insurmountable odds. The story is told from the perspective of a young Jewish boy who has survived the war thanks to his parents' heroic efforts. His family moves through a series of hiding places in the countryside, and when his father is murdered, he and his mother flee through Poland using forged papers. To maintain the facade, they adopt a false life as the Catholic family of an officer captured by the Germans.
The Victory picks up the story with the advance of the Red Army in 1944. The narrator and his mother move to yet another town, and the boy, aware he has been tainted by the war, fights to reclaim his Jewishness. Through the boy's straightforward observations, Grynberg portrays the despair of Polish Jews in 1945 as they confronted the horrors of the past and the agonizing choices of the present.
