Medallions (the original Polish title: Medaliony[2]) is a book consisting of eight short stories by the Polish author Zofia Nałkowska.[3]

The book was originally published in 1946, soon after the end of World War II. In it, Nałkowska calmly related selected stories of Nazi atrocities in Poland and the fates of their victims. Nałkowska was a member of a special committee for the investigation of Nazi crimes that took place in Poland, where she had learned facts directly from victims and witnesses.

Part of the text was published in English in the Introduction to Modern Polish Literature edited by Adam Gillon and Ludwik Krzyżanowski, before the complete edition was made available by the Northwestern University Press in 1999.[4]
