Abstract

On the basis of an analysis of literary texts by Polish-Jewish authors, the character of the Communist Jews, their motivations and relations to Jewish and Polish culture is described. This topic involves at the same time the forms of Jewish self-representation and self-consciousness, and the role played by Polonized Jews within Polish society. The article opens with a brief sketch of the possible affinities between Jewish Messianism and revolutionary utopia.
