Join us for our last lecture of the year on Polish writer, artist and literary critic Bruno Schultz, hailed as one of the great prose writers of the twentieth century. The Polish-Jewish writer and artist Bruno Schulz experienced two brutal occupations in his native region of south-eastern Poland during the Second World War. Under the German occupation, he was murdered in 1942. This presentation focuses on his survival strategies under the earlier Soviet occupation of 1939-41.
This lecture will be delivered by Professor Stanley Bill. Prof Bill is a lecturer in Polish Studies at the University of Cambridge, specialising in twentieth-century Polish literature and culture. As head of the Polish studies programme at Cambridge, he aims to help raise awareness of Poland and Polish culture in the UK.
