In the first part of the article the author focuses on the Polish-Israeli writer Ida Fink. Follows a short panorama on how some outstanding Jewish writers, Fink included, described animals as protagonist – or co-protagonists – of their narratives of the Holocaust. A further chapter is devoted to Fink’s ambivalent position as a representative both of the international literature of the Holocaust and of Polish literature. Although Fink has been generally considered a «Jewish» or even an «Israeli» writer, here her work is presented with a strong accent on her liaisons with her first motherland’s literature, and especially with the great Polish writer Zofia Nałkowska. Affinities between the two women-writers emerges with particular evidence, according to the author, in the narrative strategies chosen by them to represent the Holocaust and the suffering of animals.

Abstract

In the first part of the article the author focuses on the Polish-Israeli writer Ida Fink. Follows a short panorama on how some outstanding Jewish writers, Fink included, described animals as protagonist – or co-protagonists – of their narratives of the Holocaust. A further chapter is devoted to Fink’s ambivalent position as a representative both of the international literature of the Holocaust and of Polish literature. Although Fink has been generally considered a «Jewish» or even an «Israeli» writer, here her work is presented with a strong accent on her liaisons with her first motherland’s literature, and especially with the great Polish writer Zofia Nałkowska. Affinities between the two women-writers emerges with particular evidence, according to the author, in the narrative strategies chosen by them to represent the Holocaust and the suffering of animals.
