I feel very sympathetic about Jerry's plight, but unfortunately can't give any realistic advice. For the past eight months I have been trying to help publish two very gripping
memoirs of Poles of Jewish origin, one survivor in Germany occupied Poland, another in Lvov. Both are well written and present the events with remarkable objectivity - but unfortunately all three publishing houses, plus a publishing agent turned them down on the grounds that 'there is oversaturation of the market with the Holocaust literature'.
This seems to me a somewhat specious argument, for, if anything, in England, memoirs of the Holocaust survivors are printed non stop. I suppose the only advice I can offer is dogged perseverance, which eventually may bring positive results. Stefan Waydenfeld, a Siberian survivor, had his 'Ice Road" printed after a year of weekly writing to different publishers - he was determined not to give up, and eventually it paid off. Similarly, 'A Forgotten Odyssey' has been shown on the History Channel after three, increasingly passionate and angry letters. BBC, and other British terrestial channels, despite an extensive correspondence, still decline to show the film. I am afraid getting anywhere with a Polish subject (especially giving a positive perspective) is a very tedious thing nowadays, and you need to be virtually obsessed
to obtain any results...
Sorry I can't say anything more positive. Good luck, Jagna
