Jerzy Andrzejewski

Biography

Jerzy Andrzejewski was born in Warsaw in 1909. His father was a grocer. He studied literature at the University of Warsaw but did not take his degree. He started to write when young. He worked as a literary journalist till the war, when he was active in the resistance movement. After the War he was a supporter of the Communist regime and even became a member of Parliament, before opposing the regime and allying himself with the Solidarity movement. Much of his work is concerned with the ethical dilemma faced by the individual whether to be part of something greater. This can be seen in his most famous work – Popiół i diament (Ashes and Diamonds) – also made into a famous film by Andrzej Wajda. Andrzejewski died in 1983.
