Such a Beautiful Sunny Day…: Jews Seeking Refuge in the Polish Countryside, 1942-1945

Barbara Engelking


This groundbreaking study sheds light on the struggle of the Jews who escaped to the Polish countryside and the threats and challenges they faced. Many of the Jews encountered a hostile environment of local Poles ready to denounce them to the Germans or to participate in manhunts, and in cases where they found refuge with Polish families who took them in, the dangers for both the Jews and their rescuers grew more acute as time passed. Based on a large number of documents, the book tells the untold story of Jewish struggle for survival in a complex landscape of fear, betrayal and death.
