At the Mercy of Strangers: The Rescue of Hidden Jewish Children with Assumed Identities in Poland

Nachum Bogner


The fate of the surviving Jewish children during the Holocaust is one of the most charged and sensitive issues relating to this period. The book discusses the rescue of children who lived and survived under assumed identities in Poland among various strands of the Christian population – in towns, in villages and in convents – as well as the efforts made by various bodies after the war to locate the children. The author describes how the emotional closeness so essential for survival made it so hard for the children to leave their host families after the war.
