Scholarship on the Margins: A New Anthology about Jews in the Warsaw District Under Nazi Occupation: Barbara Engelking, Jacek Leociak, Dariusz Libionka, eds., Prowincja noc: Życie i zagłada Żydów w Dystrykcie warszawskim

The review article examines Prowincja noc, the first book to attempt an overview of the Holocaust in the Warsaw District outside the city of Warsaw itself. Engel finds that, although the book provides extensive new information about the final days of dozens of Jewish communities and also provides valuable information on the attitudes and role of local Poles in the fate of the Jews, it is also seriously flawed in the scope of its discussion and in not bringing Polish research on this subject into dialogue with research of scholars in other countries.
