The Deliverance of Jacob

Author(s): Jerzy Zawieyski
A husband comes home from a German internment center and discovers his wife living with another man. The irony is that the husband, who had been a hero with the resistance became a traitor by betraying a fellow prisoner, the man with whom his wife is now living and who, after acting cowardly during the occupation, had become a heroic figure in the camp. The dramatic action hinges on whether the men can forgive each other and the choice the wife must make.
