Excerpt: This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen, also known as Ladies and Gentlemen, to the Gas Chamber, is a collection of short stories by Tadeusz Borowski, which were inspired by the authors concentration camp experience.

The original title in the Polish language was Poegnanie z Mari (Farewell to Maria). Borowski was part of the resistance against the Nazis during World War II in Warsaw, and was incarcerated at the notorious Auschwitz death camp. In searing, satiric prose Borowski details what life and death were like in the Nazi concentration camps. The short stories are linked by the themes as well as the presence of the main character Tadek, who serves the role of the narrator as well as the central character.

To a large degree the short stories are autobiographical, although the identification of Tadek with Borowski isnt exact, even though the events found in the stories are always necessarily things experienced by Borowski himself. The short stories contained in this volume include With the authors permission, the volume was expanded to include further stories: In the stories Borowski takes a behavioral approach he only describes the behavior and outward reactions of the characters without delving into inner emotions and motivations, or specifying any kind of obvious moral judgment.
