Fascinating book on an important affair, but I think it's a kind of a miss. The authors are so keen on presenting heroism, that the book reads like a hagiography and a morality play, with an eye to Jewish-Polish reconciliation. This is a noble cause, but I would except a far more nuanced and bold book. The Zegota were a wonderful, heroic organization, but they operated in impossible conditions, and their activity (just like the activities of the Polish underground as a whole) were ambiguous and required some tough moral decisions. Even heroes and rescuers are human beings.

I am still waiting for a deeper study on the Zegota - this is not the one.

Not a novel, but rather an academic description of the horrors of being Polish or Polish Jew in Poland during WWII. Yes there are always brave in war! The brutality of the Germans should NEVER be forgotten! Not good reading, but educational.

Great book. Thought provoking and offers insight into the dedication of the Polish people risking their lives to save Jews during WW ll German occupation.

Amazing history and surely not enough known in the western world. The courage and sacrifice of ordinary people under such incredible conditions is a challenge and inspiration to all. Thank you to the authors for their conviction to bring this history to light and the greatest of honor and admiration to those represented in this book.

Why Poland? As Adolf Hitler expressly laid out in Mein Kampf, the populations to the east of Germany were considered Untermenschen, lower humans, of which the Jews were at the very botrtom. Therefore, these areas were to be occupied to provide Lebensraum, living space, for the Aryan populations. Most of the death camps during the Holocaust were in Poland.

In Part I, Irene Tomaszewski and Tecia Werbowski portray life and death on the Aryan side (i.e., the areas outside the Warsaw Ghetto) and the Jewish side, the Warsaw Ghetto itself, where the city’s Jews were confined in separate, sealed-off living quarters.

Part II describes Zegota and how it came to be. The Konrad Zegota Committee arose almost immediately after the German invasion of Poland in September 1939. By 1942, there was little doubt left among leaders of the Polish and Jewish underground movements that the German propaganda of agriculture communes in the east was false and that the Nazis planned nothing short of the total annihilation of the Jewish population. Aside from Nazi soldiers and officers, who had free license to kill anyone they pleased, there was an organized crime element of paid informers, szmalcowniks, as they were called. Two remarkable women, Zofia Kossak and Wanda Krahelska-Filipowicz assumed the critical leadership to unify the efforts with the Jewish Fighting Organization. Thus was born, with the help of two Jewish underground leaders, the Konrad Zegota Committee. It was, as the title of the book says, a code name.

In Part III, Tomaszewski and Werbowski chronicle individual first-hand stories of courage, both the rescuers and the rescued, of which one of the most famous was Irena Sendler. Incidentally, it is odd that the authors did not mention her when they interviewed Bieta Ficowska, the youngest of the children Irena Sendler rescued. Her future husband was, Jerzy Ficowski, a Gentile and one of the many heroes this otherwise extraordinary book recognizes.

Although both Polish and Jewish underground movements during the Nazi occupation have been known since the Second World War, when Jan Karski smuggled secret documents and offered his own eyewitness accounts to the Polish government-in-exile in London, the true extent of the underground movements in Poland and the Nazi atrocities would remain secret until after the end of the war. Among the network of underground organizations was Zegota. What we learn in this book was that each Jewish life saved relied on the heroic efforts of two members of Zegota.

And now, thanks to this remarkable book, we can learn these secrets that should be kept secret no longer.

Tomaszewski and Werbowski have written an important book. Finally, someone is telling the story of what Polish Gentiles did to rescue Jews during World War II. Sadly the book is marred by their continued and false accusation that "the world" or "the Allies" or "governments" stood by and did nothing to save the Jews. This is arrant nonsense and if the authors had done some research before making the accusation they would have added a more valuable piece of literature to the subject. In William Rubenstein's book "The Myth of Rescue" he points out that between 1939 and 1942 the Allies simply did not have the equipment to save Jewry in Poland. No planes could have reached Poland and any land-based rescue would have had to plough through Germany to get there. No sensible plans to rescue Jews were ever formulated and present critics of the Allies' "non-actions" in rescuing Jews is simply hindsight and therefore untenable. In this sensitive area Tomaszewski and Werbowski were slipshod.
