Overview

Considered a masterpiece of antifascist world literature, Medallions stands as the culmination of Nalkowska's literary style, a style the Polish writer Witold Gombrowicz once described as "the iron capital of her art and one of the very few exportables in our national literature." More than mere historical record, Medallions offers the reader startling immediacy, the repetition of an event as it persists in the testimonial present, in the scars on the consciousness and conscience of individuals.

I have read it when I lived in Poland. There, that title is on the school's must read books. It contains some hard to overcome describtions. At some parts you have to put it away, just to catch a breath and wipe your tears. It is based on the stories of surivors, and believe me, their stories are worth your time
