Product description

Review

"The most significant contribution of this book . . . [is that, ] through the media of personal recollections, we are given insights into the numerous Polish rescue and aid organizations. . . . Overall, this collection of survivor accounts is a valuable addition to the historiography of Nazism and Polish-Jewish relations during the Second World War. It will be a particularly useful resource for those students and teachers who are reliant on English material. Quite naturally, the book benefits from the many strengths ingredient to a collection of personal memories . . . "--H-Net Reviews

"As a memorial volume, the text works well, aided by the inclusion of photographs of each survivor (then and now) and eight pages of sketches of life in Auschwitz by the survivor Jan Komski. . . . If approached as a memorial volume and/or a collection of oral histories, this is a fascinating book. . . . "--SEER

"These stories are moving and powerful. Lukas's introduction is a well-written, clear, and masterful summary of just what that 'forgotten Holocaust' of Polish Christians entailed during the six long years of Nazi occupation. That chapter alone should be required reading. . . . These testimonies, painful as they are, must be listened to because the story of Polish Christian persecution during World War II has been largely unheard."--Polish American Journal

"While the Holocaust is well known, the fate of Polish Christians in the camps is far less so. This is a much needed, important, and moving book."--Piotr S. Wandycz, president, Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences of America

"Lukas pays special attention to the sufferings of Poland's Catholic majority, presenting stories from the resistance and the risings, from Auschwitz and Mauthausen, and from the death marches and forced labor camps. . . . A wonderful testament to the survival of the human spirit in adversity."--Norman Davies, author of God's Playground: A History of Poland
