Borowski, Tadeusz

 

Born Nov. 22, 1922, in Žitomir; died July 3, 1951, in Warsaw. Polish author.

Borowski’s first book of poems, The Land Somewhere (1942), was published underground during the fascist German occupation of Poland. From 1943 to the end of World War II, Borowski was in German concentration camps. His collections of stories and memoirs, We Were in O święcim (1946, together with J. Siedlecki and K. Olszewski), Stone World (1948), Saying Good-bye to Maria (1948), and others, tell of the inhumane conditions in fascist camps. Borowski was awarded the State Prize of the People’s Republic of Poland in 1950.
