Abstract:

After the Warsaw ghetto uprising in April 1943 and the liquidation of the ghetto, ca. 30,000 Jews lived in hiding in Warsaw. Two Jews, Gestapo confidantes - Leon Skosowski and Adam Żurawin - organized the Hotel Polski as a center to which Jews holding foreign passports or promise of a visa, or those who could buy them, could check in and wait for transports to take them to other countries. The Gestapo kept the foreign passports belonging to Jews who perished during the uprising or who were later sent to extermination camps. These passports allowed Jews to be sent to the Vittel camp in France, where the prisoners could then be exchanged for German internees in other countries. Ca. 1,000 Jews passed through the Hotel Polski. States that, among these, there were only two groups who survived the war: American Jews who were transported to Vittel (and later to the USA) and those who had certificates for Palestine. Their visas were confirmed by the British authorities. The majority held South American passports, whose consulates did not confirm their authenticity. The Jews were transported to Auschwitz and murdered.
