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