    1. Disorienting memoir of the time of the Warsaw Uprising in 1944, with moments taken from before and after. I say "disorienting" because there's seldom any understanding or reaction of what goes on. Białoszewski does write in his own emotional reactions of events, he describes them. He is meticulous in his detail, but the detail is all about rushing, confusion, never understanding where the battle is coming from or where to go next. No one person can understand the course of the uprising as it ha [...]


    2. A certain synchronicity brought me to A Memoir of the Warsaw Uprising on the tail of Inside the Head of Bruno Schultz. The latter book, a fictional account of a brief segment in the life of the Polish author shows Bruno Schultz, in 1938, desperately trying to communicate with the outside world via Thomas Mann. The Germans have yet to arrive in Schultz’s hometown of Drohobycz. The novel makes reference to the horrific slaughter committed by the Nazis yet to come, and in Miron Bialoszewski’s A [...]


    3. A valuable contribution to the canon of the Warsaw UprisingMiron Białoszewski’s book is not the standard documentary account you would expect. He describes the civilian experience of the Uprising as an observer rather than an active participant despite being of military age at the time.The Uprising numbers beggar belief. Of a prewar population of 1.3 million, 150,000 civilians and 18,000 underground soldier killed, and this is excluding 400,000 Jews who were sent to their deaths from 1939-43. [...]


    4. Milosz calls Bialoszewski “a poet of dirty staircases” who “questions the communicative function of language, and substitutes for words mumblings and mutterings”. This only becomes obvious when one reads his excellent “A Memoir of the Warsaw Uprising” (1970), which, to the unwitting reader, is strange to say the least; he writes as if he is associating ideas or objects with memories and vice-versa. There is a rambling logic to it all made more pertinent when one realises that Bialosz [...]


    5. Had to read this for school, but it ended it up both suprising and shocking me in ways only war can. Review to come soon


    6. a remarkable memoir in that it makes you tense in a way that others who recorded these events do not. There is constant running and scattering, constant bombings and shootings. I felt my jaw tighten. There are short sentences and poetry and singing. There are descriptions of the sewers. The gray poles and the dust and the pipes of basements. Lists of streets and buildings that have been destroyed. Eventually, the whole city is destroyed, it is all rubble.



    7. This is an extraordinary book. I bought in the wonderful bookstore Massolit in Krakow, due to the advice of an enthusiastic young employee that talked lively about lots of Polish books when I asked him what I should read to get to know something of Polish literature. I was not disappointed with this one, hope the others will be as good.It's a violent book, extremely well written, the Warsaw Uprising in August and September 1944 narrated day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute. One can almost [...]


    8. Right from the very first page this bleak yet poetic memoir is written in a startling bare way that pays little head to style or literary form and even less to the conventions of memoir and journalistic written. Bialoszewski's text is written as a stream of consciousness, very very conscious of what he is doing although it seems at times to be confused and rambling. Too many books are typecast as works dealing with that emphemeral of themes - memory. A Memoir of the Warsaw Uprising really does s [...]


    9. Boring, boring, boring. Did I mention that it was boring? Well, it was. And confusing as well.You get lost within the streets of Warsaw under siege, after the ghetto uprising? Before it? Well, who knows. The author tries to reproduce some sort of stream of consciousness and his readers don't a clue about where he was, who he as with, who was part of his familyAt the end of the day, a sad story but a very appealing one.


    10. Czytałam nocami. Myślałam dniami. Najbardziej utkwiło we mnie to wędrowanie kanałami. Ten ranny na plecach. I to że powtarzały się te Wolskie sprawy. Cały czas. I to że latały "szafy" i "krowy" i kule i samolotyi ludzie. I to że wtedy, w 1920, nie chcieli, a teraz chcieli, żeby przyszli. Bolszewicy. No i upadek. Bo jednak trzeba żyć. A nie ma Warszawy. Nie ma Warszawiaków. Bardzo polecam to Powstanie z perspektywy młodego Mirona!


    11. Very difficult to read--I'm afraid I couldn't get all the way through it, but I'll keep trying another time. Białoszewski's story is an important one though, and his voice should be heard. The Warsaw Uprising was horrific and this memoir truly reflects that. I hope it reaches a wider American audience in the future.


    12. Przynajmniej 1/3 pamiętnika czyta się koszmarnie, zdania pojedyńcze, chaos, zaprzeczanie sobie samemu, nadają charakter pisania ich podczas zawieruchy Powstańczej, chociaż w większosci powstały w latach 60. Świetne metafory z literatury klasycznej, ukazanie różnicy między Powstaniem na Starym Mieście, a w Środmieściu.


    13. Memoir of the Warsaw uprising of 1944 which resulted in more than 200,000 people killed and the center of Warsaw flattened by the Nazi's. Written 20 years after the uprising, this is clearly not an historical nor chronological work. It is more a stream-of-consciousness memoir. A story of survival but lacking in the horror of the uprising.


    14. An eyewitness account of Warsaw Uprising by non-combatant. Fate of civilians, Methodical killings by Latvian and Ukrainian criminals. Continuous bombing by German Luftwaffe. A living hell for innocent civilians.


    15. A very challenging read, and while I couldn't follow much of it, I appreciated the many tragic and solemn epiphanies with which it is laced: a rare, strange account of life, death, and endurance during almost unendurably dark times.



    16. Miron Białoszewski wrote a relayions from the Warsaw Uprising in form of a diary. Rather good book, but if you read that in school, re-read that.


    17. Kiedy czytałam tą książkę jeździłam do pracy przez Powiśle. Wyobrażałam sobie, gdzie mógł stać ten dom na Rybakach
