UCLA - THE ANNUAL 1939 SOCIETY LECTURE IN HOLOCAUST STUDIES

Wounds of History:
The Polish Underground and the Jews during World War II

Joshua Zimmerman (Yeshiva University)
Discussing one of the central problems in the history of Polish-Jewish relations: the attitude and behavior of the Polish Underground toward the Jews during World War II. Presenting archival documents, testimonies, and memoirs, Zimmerman recasts the entire debate by concluding that the reaction of the Polish Underground to the catastrophe that befell European Jewry was immensely varied—sometimes killing and other times helping the Jews who also participated in the anti-Nazi struggle.
