If you enjoy figures and tables, this book is for you. This work includes a map of the hundreds of pre-WWII Jewish communities in Poland, and features many tables of post-WWII Polish cities and towns and the number of Jews that survived in them. It lists hundreds of Jewish child survivors by name. It also touches on Jewish returnees from the concentration camps and the Soviet Union.


The first tally conducted by Jewish communities, and dated May 1, 1945 [before the end of the European part of WWII], identified 42,662 total surviving Polish Jews--a figure considered 10-15% inflated owing to duplicate listings. (p. 10, 67). [The 40,000 figure is commonly, but erroneously, listed as the actual number of Jews who survived the Nazis owing to Polish help. In actuality, it is an absolute minimum.]

Now consider much higher figures. Author Dobroszycki ridicules the estimates of Tadeusz Bednarczyk, and others, that suggest a few hundred thousand Polish Jews surviving in German-occupied Poland. However, on these same pages, he cites comparable figures! In a quoted conversation between Ignacy Schwartzbard (a Jewish representative in the Polish Government in Exile) and Jan Stanczyk, figures of 90,000 and 200,000 were seriously discussed as the number of Polish Jews who survived (EXCLUDING those in Russia). (pp. 27-28).


The return of Polish Jews from German camps came later. In May-December 1945, nearly 5,000 Jews came from German concentration camps, mainly Buchenwald, Dachau, Bergen-Belsen, etc. (p. 11).

An estimated additional 240,000--250,000 Jews eventually returned from other places, mainly the Soviet Union, out of some 300,000--350,000 Polish Jews that had been out of reach of the Nazis. (p.
