His wartime poetry and stories dealing with his experiences as a prisoner at Auschwitz are recognized as classics of Polish literature. In , Borowski's mother was deported to a settlement on the shores of the Yenisey , in Siberia, during Collectivization.
During this time Tadeusz lived with his aunt. Impoverished, the family settled in Warsaw. Under Nazi occupation, Poles were forbidden to attend university or even secondary school. In Borowski finished his secondary schooling in Nazi-occupied Poland in an underground lyceum.
He graduated from high school in amid the roundups of Jewish residents. He began his underground studies in Polish literature at Warsaw University. His classes met in secret at private homes. While attending university he met Maria Rundo, who would become the love of his life. He also became involved with the leftist publication Droga. Wherever the Earth , his anonymously self-published collection of poems, was distributed illegally.
The poems have been described by modern scholars as "remarkable for their dark view of the earth as an enormous labor camp". While a member of the educational underground in Warsaw, Borowski was engaged and living with Rundo.
After Maria did not return home one night in February , Borowski began to suspect that she had been arrested. Rather than staying away from any of their usual meeting places, though, he walked straight into the trap that was set by the Gestapo agents in the apartment of his and Maria's close friend. Borowski was 21 years old when he was imprisoned in Pawiak prison for two months before he was shipping to Auschwitz that April.
Forced into slave labor in extremely harsh conditions, Borowski later reflected on this experience in his writing.
In particular, working on a railway ramp in Auschwitz-Birkenau, he witnessed arriving Jews being told to leave their personal property behind, and then being transferred directly from the trains to the gas chambers. While a prisoner at Auschwitz, Borowski caught pneumonia ; afterwards, he was put to work in a Nazi medical experiment "hospital.
In late Borowski was transported from Auschwitz to the Dautmergen subcamp of Natzweiler-Struthof , and finally to Dachau. He spent some time in Paris , and then returned to Poland on May 31, Borowski turned to prose after the war, believing that what he had to say could no longer be expressed in verse. The main stories are written in the first person from the perspective of an Auschwitz inmate; they describe the morally numbing effect of everyday terror, with prisoners, trying to survive, often being indifferent or mean towards each other; the privileges of non-Jewish inmates like Borowski; and the absence of any heroism.
Early on after its publication in Poland, the work was accused of being nihilistic, amoral and decadent. Borowski's poem Silence was written in the aftermath of the liberation of Dachau. The poem is set in the newly liberated concentration camp and opens with imagery depicting a disgraced SS officer being dragged into an alley by a mob of prisoners who try to tear him apart with their bare hands.
They return to the barracks and the scene is one of communal food preparation, prisoners noisily grinding grain , slicing meat, mixing pancake batter and peeling potatoes in the narrow paths that wind between their bunk beds. They are playing cards and drinking hot soup when an American officer arrives.
While expressing sympathy for the prisoners seeking vengeance against their captors, he urges restraint, and promises punishment under law. Some prisoners begin to debate where to kill the American officer, but the crowd begins to applaud the officer's promise of justice. When the American officer leaves the camp the prisoners return to the SS officer from the opening scene and trample him to death. The Polish government considered the poem "amoral"  but Borowski found work as a journalist.
He joined the Soviet-controlled Polish Workers' Party in and wrote political tracts as well. At first he believed that Communism was the only political force truly capable of preventing any future Auschwitz from happening. He returned to Warsaw a year later and entered into an extramarital affair with a young girl. Borowski tried to intervene on his behalf and failed; he became completely disillusioned with the socialist regime.
On July 3, , at the age of 28, Borowski committed suicide  by breathing in gas from a gas stove. An obituary notice in "Nowa Kultura" was signed by 86 writers. Soon after, a special issue of this weekly newspaper appeared with contributions from the elite of Polish literature. Since then, countless texts, poem and articles by and about Borowski have been published, as well as many books in various languages and editions," writes Holocaust survivor Arnold Lustiger in Die Welt.
His books are recognized as classics of Polish post-war literature and had much influence in Central European society. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Not to be confused with Tadeusz Bobrowski. Further information: Siege of Warsaw Gale Cengage Learning.
