The myth of Polish Mother has a long tradition and it still influences the concept of motherhood in Poland. This paper is an attempt to show how two polish female writers analyse the problem of raped mothers and the further cir-culation of violence in the families and next generation. In her famous psycho-logical novel The Stranger Maria Kuncewiczowa shows a disturbet mother-daughter bound, Joanna Bator goes a few steps further an focuses on the second generation and other family members.
