Forced Out: The Fate of Polish Jewry in Communist Poland


Forced Out: The Fate of Polish Jewry in Communist Poland Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Wolak, the son of Holocaust survivors, explores the influences that led to the 1967-68 "anti-Zionist" campaign that targeted Poland's small population of citizens of Jewish ancestry for state-sanctioned harassment and eviction. He places the government's actions in the context of the postwar Jewish experience in Poland and the Soviet Union, commenting on the geopolitical, social, and temporal influences that contributed to them, directly and indirectly. Scattered b&w photos show some of the people and places under discussion.
