Background. The theme of World War II stays important in contemporary literature. B. Schlink, I. McEwan, J. Littell and other authors attempt to re-evaluate what was happening during 1939–1945, they seek to revise established views on the war events. The study of how the events of the Second World War are depicted in Western European and North American contemporary literature is important in the current geopolitical situation. Contemporary British writer Graham Joyce (1954–2014) appeals to this theme twice: in the novel “The Facts of Life” and in the novella “Leningrad Nights”. The article aims to analyse the situation of moral choice in which the main character of the novella is placed.
