A vibrant Jewish community flourished in Poland from late in the tenth century until it was virtually annihilated in World War II. In this remarkable anthology, the first of its kind, Harold B. Segel offers translations of poems and prose works--mainly fiction--by non-Jewish Polish writers. Taken together, the selections represent the complex perceptions about Jews in the Polish community in the period 1530-1990.

Harold B. Segel is Professor Emeritus of Slavic Languages and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. Among his previous books are Polish Romantic Drama and Renaissance Culture in Poland: The Rise of Humanism, also from Cornell.
