JA³zef Hen, born in 1923 in Warsaw as JA³zef Henryk Cukier, is one of the most highly regarded Polish writers of his generation. Following the outbreak of World War II, he escaped from Poland to the East before he joined the Polish Army in exile. He was a war correspondent and published his first poem in a magazine for soldiers, the Soldier's Voice. During the war he lost several close relatives.

Other works by Hen have been translated into numerous languages. He has also written scripts for several Polish movies and TV series and was a film director.
