In 1942, following the liquidation of the ghettos, at least 250,000 Polish Jews sought refuge “on the Aryan side”, among the gentile population. From among them no more than 30,000- 40,000 survived the war. The fate of the rest remains, for the most part, unknown. The “human horizon” of unknown and unreported victims is, therefore, larger than 200,000 people – and this number concerns occupied Poland alone.
Key Questions to be Addressed…
What happened to these people?
What were the circumstances of their death?
What was the attitude of the local populations to Jews in hiding?
