The Fate of Polish Jewry in Communist PolandBook - 2004
In the late 1960s, after the Holocaust had brought about the almost total destruction of centuries of Jewish civilization in Poland, senior leaders of the ruling Communist Party initiated a domestic terror campaign that resulted in the unceremonious eviction of thousands of Polish Jews. Why did the leadership of a nation that professed equality among all peoples suddenly drive them into exile? In "Forced Out," Arthur Wolak explores this turbulent era, revealing a period in modern European history that offers important cautionary lessons about the dangers of political opportunism and the inherent evils of totalitarianism.
