Bereś’s book of the year.

W. Bereś: “This is a book which does not entirely meet the formal requirements  of this contest, but it is so fine and went so unnoticed, that I had to notice it. It is Uwe von Seltmann’s “Gabi and Uwe: My Grandfather Died In Auschwitz, And Mine Was An Esesman.” The book is written by a German man, yet his Polish wife plays an important role in this project that is closely tied with Poland. What’s more, this book fits the traditional non-fiction model while retaining a strong literary tone.”

In front of the wall of fames with Jerzy Sosnowski. His questions were the most unusual and interesting … I’m still thinking about them … Jerzy Sosnowski wrote about the book in his blog.
