The life of Polish Jewish author, Bruno Schulz, was cut short through a violent death at Nazi hands, and much of his writings were lost. Nevertheless, the stories and essays he left behind earned him a reputation as one of Poland’s great writers, and his work continues to influence contemporary Jewish authors of renown, including David Grossman and Philip Roth. In this talk, Agata Tuszynska— who has recently published an award-winning biography of Schultz—focuses on the role that Schultz’s fiancée and muse played in ensuring Schultz’s legacy.
