Vera Gran : the accused / Agata Tuszyńska ; translated by Charles Ruas from the French of Isabelle Jannès-Kalinowski

Publication | Library Call Number: ML420.G81 T8713 2013
Book cover

The extraordinary, controversial story of Vera Gran, and her piano accompanist, Władysław Szpilman. Gran was a beautiful, exotic prewar Polish singing star: sensual contralto, favorite of the 1930s Warsaw nightclubs, celebrated before, and during, her year in the Warsaw Ghetto, but afterwards accused of collaborating with the Nazis. An explosive, resonant portrait of lives lived inside a nightmare time, exploring the larger, more profound question of the nature of collaboration, of the price of survival, and of the long, treacherous shadow cast in its aftermath.
