Cultural Writing. I'M NOT EVEN A GROWN-UP: THE DIARY OF JERZY FELIKS URMAN is edited and translated by Anthony Rudolf, whose second cousin Jerzy committed suicide in West Ukraine in 1943. The editor's introduction and notes attempt to portray the cataclysmic background and foreground to the dramatic and hopeless situation Jerzy found himself in. Rudolf includes a memoir written by Jerzy's mother, Sophie Urman who with her husband survived the war. Rudolf argues that in in circumstances where armed resistance was for the most part impossible or counterproductive, the child's death can be seen as an act of resistance of the noblest and most tragic kind. The diary has joined a growing literature of similar works written in hiding.
