The Forgotten Holocaust: The Poles Under German Occupation, 1939-1944

Front Cover
Hippocrene, 1997 - History - 358 pages
Documents the horrifying ethnic, social, and political purges of the Third Reich against a diverse group of people living in Poland between 1939 and 1945. The author shows that in order to understand the fate of one ethnic community in occupied Poland, one must refer to the fate of others. He focuses on the impact of the German occupation in western and central Poland in the early and middle years of the war, and debunks the myths that Nazis were the only murderers, that the only victims were Jews, and that Polish citizens witnessed the atrocities but did not resist.
