I my work I refer to separated in literary discourse from the wide range of non-fiction literature literary witness. Both types of literature from the assumption refer to authentic events and include truthful style of perception. In my article I try to investigate weather there are any differences between the truth of literature of fact and the truth literary witness on selected texts of three authors: Chaim Grade, Józef Mackiewicz i Czesław Miłosz.
I must be pointed that literary witness in the first place struggling with specifying of the inner truth of the main character, who experienced a borderline situation. Literature of fact is a transcription of a story of an eyewitness, who forwards the truth of the events.
