    This event takes place at our Brooklyn location.

    On the occasion of the revised edition of Miron Białoszewski's A Memoir of the Warsaw Uprising, we host a panel of distinguished editors, scholars, and translators to discuss the invaluable, harrowing account that Czesław Miłosz described as "as a faithful, antiheroic, and nonpathetic description of disintegration." The book's translator, Madeline Levine, will be joined by historian Timothy Snyder (Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning) and fellow translator Alissa Valles for a discussion moderated by Edwin Frank, editor of the New York Review Books Classics series. This is event is co-sponsored by the Polish Cultural Institute, New York.

    On August 1, 1944, Miron Bialoszewski, later to gain renown as one of Poland's most innovative poets, went out to run an errand for his mother and ran into history. With Soviet forces on the outskirts of Warsaw, the Polish capital revolted against five years of Nazi occupation, an uprising that began in a spirit of heroic optimism. Sixty-three days later it came to a tragic end.
