Abstract:

Describes the deployment and operations of the German "Ordnungspolizei" (Public Order Police) in Poland under Nazi occupation. The book is organized geographically, covering the region annexed to Germany (the Warthegau) and the districts comprising the Generalgouvernement: Białystok, Kraków, Radom, Warsaw, and Lublin. Within each district, describes the history and actions of specific companies and battalions, including regular battalions, reserve battalions, the Schutzpolizei, and the gendarmerie. Discusses the extent of participation of the police in the mass murder of Jews; their activities included rounding up the Jews for deportation, accompanying the transports, patrolling the villages, towns and cities, guard duty in the ghettos and camps, and actual carrying out of massacres in some locations (at times on their own initiative). States that the police took part in some way in the deaths of ca. 1,723,000 Jews in Poland. Adds that hundreds of sentences issued in trials after the war, and hundreds of eyewitnesses, prove that the "Ordnungspolizei" was a crucial instrument in the annihilation of the Jews in Poland.
