I Am First A Human Being: The Prison Letters Of Krystyna Wituska - nouveau livre

ISBN: 9781550650952

ID: 978155065095

On the eve of World War II a carefree, rather spoiled teenager, Krystyna Wituska, returned to Poland from her school in Switzerland. Evicted from their estate when the Germans invaded Poland, the family fled to Warsaw where Krystyna, by then 20 years old, found work, continued her studies in secret, and drifted into the Resistance. By her own admission, she was attracted at first by the adventure of it, but youthful bravado soon turned into a mental and spiritual mastery over fear. By late 1941 Krystyna joined the precursor of the Polish Underground and because she spoke fluent German, was assigned to an espionage cell in Warsaw to collect information on German airforce movements at Warsaw''s airport. In 1942, at the age of twenty-one she was arrested and interrogated by the Gestapo. She was transferred to prison in Berlin and executed two years later. In the last year of her life Krystyna wrote over sixty poignant letters which through the kindness of a courageous prison guard were smuggled to her parents or to the guard''s daughter, who became her pen pal. From the moment she was arrested Krystyna would not allow her spirit to be broken and believed that the noble that is within us will not perish. In the time that was left to her she reveled in the pleasures that were uniquely human—learning languages, treasuring the poems of her prison friends—the sun caressing her face during a brief outing was better than a kiss. With love and compassion Krystyna wrote not just about herself but about all those who shared her fate. The letters read like a story in which the reader shares Krystyna''s hopes and anxieties as one by one the fate of the prisoners is decided. After the German defeat at Stalingrad, Hitler ordered mandatory death sentences for all spies. As her end approached, Krystyna was more concerned about her parents than she was with herself. She exhorts her mother to hold her head high and to have courage, no matter what: When you smile, I smile with you, but when you cry, I cry with you.

On the eve of World War II, Krystyna Wituska, a carefree, rather spoiled teenager attending finishing school in Switzerland, returned to Poland. During the Occupation, when she was twenty years old, she drifted into the Polish Underground. By her own admission, she was attracted at first by the adventure, but youthful bravado soon turned into a mental and spiritual mastery over fear. Because Krystyna spoke fluent German she was assigned to collect information on German troop movements at Warsaw airport. In 1942, at the age of twenty-one, she was arrested by the Gestapo and transferred to prison in Berlin where she was executed two years later. In the last eighteen months of her life Krystyna wrote over sixty letters which, through the kindness of a courageous prison guard, were smuggled to her parents or the guard's daughter who became her penpal. From the moment she was arrested, Krystyna would not allow her spirit to be broken and believed that "the noble that is within us will not perish." It is Krystyna's humanity that unites her with other victims of war and other resistance fighters, and enables us to identify with her even though her ordeal was outside the scope of our experience.
