Hunt for the Jews : betrayal and murder in German-occupied Poland by Jan Grabowski( )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Judenjagd, hunt for the Jews, was the German term for the organized searches for Jews who, having survived ghetto liquidations and deportations to death camps in Poland in 1942, attempted to hide "on the Aryan side." Jan Grabowski's penetrating microhistory tells the story of the Judenjagd in Dąbrowa Tarnowska, a rural county in southeastern Poland, where the majority of the Jews in hiding perished as a consequence of betrayal by their Polish neighbors. Drawing on materials from Polish, Jewish, and German sources created during and after the war, Grabowski documents the involvement of the local Polish population in the process of detecting and killing the Jews who sought their aid. Through detailed reconstruction of events, this focused account of the fates of individual Jews casts a bright light on a little-known aspect of the Holocaust in Poland."--Publisher description

Szantażowanie Żydów w Warszawie, 1939-1943 : "ja tego Żyda znam!" by Jan Grabowski( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in Polish and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the phenomenon of blackmailing Jews during the war, which was not marginal as has been reported in many books and articles published in Poland. Delineates two periods: up to November 1941, when Jews who were blackmailed were arrested or fined, and after the closing of the ghetto, when denunciation could mean death for the victim. The blackmail in the second period is called "szmalcownictwo". Describes the activities of gangs or groups of blackmailers, as well as of single individuals. The blackmailers were mostly Poles, but also Germans (Volksdeutche), and they were sometimes helped by Jews. Discusses threats on the streets and in victims' homes, against the background of the changing situation of the Jews in Warsaw which was affected by Nazi decisions and decrees. States that the blackmailers were not only criminals or hooligans, but also persons who in peacetime could have been decent people. The populace in Warsaw was indifferent to blackmailing, not only because of Nazi decrees excluding the Jews from Polish society, but also because of prewar antisemitism which prepared the ground for such behavior

Studium wybranych powiatów" Jedna z najwazniejszych konkluzji wynikajacych z kilku lat badan ,,zydowskich strategii przerwania" jest bogactwo obserwacji dotyczacych stopnia przedsiebiorczosci, wlasnej inicjatywy Zydów w obliczu Zaglady. Uderzaja determinacja, mobilnosc, odwaga, z jaka ofiary podjely walke o zycie wlasne oraz najblizszych. Z chwila rozpoczecia akcji likwidacyjnych, kiedy malo kto mógl zywic nadal jakiekolwiek zludzenia co do ostatecznych celów polityki niemieckiej, Zydzi zintensyfikowali desperacka walke o przetrwanie. Z jednej strony w domach oraz pod domami budowano schowki i bunkry, a w podwójnych scianach i na strychach urzadzano przemyslne kryjówki. Z drugiej - nawiazywano kontakty ze strona aryjska, których celem bylo znalezienie pomocy i kryjówki. Tam, gdzie bylo to mozliwe, powstawaly siatki przerzutu za granice, zwlaszcza na Slowacje i Wegry. --
