The Pianist

4 April 2015
A review of the autobiography of the Polish pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman.

This paper discusses the life of the pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman, a Jew who saved himself from being expatriated to a Nazi death camp during the Second World War by staying undercover in the ruins of Warsaw until a German soldier rescued him. It illustrates how his music endowed Szpilman with the strength to survive.
“While narrating his accidental detachment from the carriage that transported his family to ascertained death, Szpilman boldly confesses the instinctive fear due to which he did not let go of the opportunity to flee, nor belittles his feelings by over-stressing them. In spite of all that, the author’s serene writing style holds an abundance of bitter fury, most of which is covered in sarcastic remarks. For instance, Szpilman quotes, a Jewish doctor spared consignment to the most wonderful of all gas chambers. ”
