Impartial or Involved, European or Polish? In Search of the Identity of the Reporter (Today We’re Going to Draw Death by Wojciech Tochman)

Authors: Małgorzata Sokołowicz

The present paper discusses Today We’re Going to Draw Death, a Polish reportage by Wojciech Tochman, dealing with Tutsi genocide of 1994. The analyses show that the narrator‑reporter becomes an independent protagonist of the text. His approach towards what he describes, his commitment or his impartiality as well as his European spirit dominating the Polish one seem to constitute the features of the contemporary reportage where nothing is given to the reader obliged to look for the meaning altogether with the reporter.
