Secret city : the hidden Jews of Warsaw, 1940-1945 by Gunnar S Paulsson( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though the Nazis forced most of Warsaw's Jews into the city's infamous ghetto during World War II, some 28,000 Jews either hid and never entered the Warsaw Ghetto or escaped from it. This book-the first detailed treatment of Jewish escape and hiding during the Holocaust-tells the dramatic story of the hidden Jews of Warsaw. Gunnar S. Paulsson shows that after the 1942 deportations nearly a quarter of the ghetto's remaining Jews managed to escape. Once in hiding, connected by elaborate networks of which Poles, Germans, and the Jews themselves were largely unaware, they formed what can aptly be called a secret city. Paulsson challenges many established assumptions. He shows that despite appalling difficulties and dangers, many of these Jews survived; that the much-reviled German, Polish, and Jewish policemen, as well as Jewish converts and their families, were key in helping Jews escape; that though many more Poles helped than harmed the Jews, most stayed neutral; and that escape and hiding happened spontaneously, without much help from either the Polish or the Jewish underground. He suggests that the Jewish leadership was wrong to dismiss the possibility of escape, staking everything on a hopeless uprising. Paulsson's engrossing book offers a new perspective on Jewish honor and Holocaust history
The Holocaust exhibition at the Imperial War Museum( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Holocaust -- the attempted annihilation of European Jewry -- continues to bewilder all who encounter it. Indeed it has often been described as beyond representation, so terrible was the suffering of the victims, so evil the perpetrators who carried it out. In Britain's national museum of modern conflict, we show the efforts and sacrifice of many people, including those Allied servicemen and women who gave their lives to defeat Nazism. The Holocaust Exhibition now depicts also the nature of the evil which they helped to defeat. We have tried to relate the facts of this cataclysmic event, bringing some understanding of what happened and why. This is important for everyone, especially for young people -- the Holocaust is on the National Curriculum and many schools will be visiting the Exhibition as part of their studies. - Foreword
