New Book by Malgorzata Tryuk

Małgorzata Tryuk, On Ethics and Interpreters, Frankfurt a/Main: Peter Lang.  ISBN 978-3-631-65869

The history of translation and interpreting is above all the history of men, women and sometimes children, who became translators and intrepreters. It is the history of why and how they chose that job, how it affected their lives and work and how they carried out the tasks of translating and interpreting. The book presents the lives, loyalties and indentities of interpreters who, either by choice or by force had to work during wartime, in armed conflict zones, at the trials of war criminals after World War II and in nazi concentration camps.
