This article discusses the interpretation of the war waged over the memory of national suffering and a peculiar rivalry in victimhood between Poles and Jews in the writings of Jewish intellectuals in Poland after the 1980s. It focuses on works by three authors representative of different generations, different philosophies of being Jewish in Poland after the Shoah, and different strategies of functioning in Polish-Jewish relations: a leader of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising Marek Edelman (1919–2009); philosopher, publicist and Jewish activist Stanisław Krajewski (b. 1950); and journalist Konstanty Gebert (b. 1953).
