Forgotten Holocaust consists of seven chapters, beginning with a discussion of the German occupation of Poland. This section details German atrocities against the Poles from A to Z, including street-executions, round-ups, kidnappings, etc.

Lukas (born 1937) is an American historian and author of books and articles on military, diplomatic, Polish, and Polish-American history.

I have heard many stories of Jews who fled Warsaw on that momentous day, 6 September 1939, and were given shelter, hospitality and food by Polish peasants who did not ask for any payment for their help. It is also known that our children who go begging and appear in their tens and hundreds in the Christian streets.

Much of this book is about Poles and Jews as victims of Nazi policies of genocide. The author sets out to correct what he sees as tendentious and distorted versions of history that present the tragedy of the Jews as the Holocaust, and have made much of Polish anti-Semitism.

The revised edition includes a short history of ZEGOTA, the underground government organisation working to save the Jews, and an annotated listing of many Poles executed by the Germans for trying to shelter and save Jews.
  • Like 'Fogotten Holocost' it is a well written, well documented book about the reality of Nazi Poland. As a Pole I am so tired of Hollywood's "Jew Only" version of the Holocost and Lukas puts that fallacy to bed with factual, scholarly work. I have bought copies for family members and they too have been amazed to learn the whole story. The Polini are the toughest people on earth IMHO. This book spells out why.

  • Historic accounts of this era tend to focus on the roles played by Hitler, Stalin and Churchill. What happened in Poland typically remains a "back-story." This book has been written about the events in Poland and the Polish political landscape. It discusses sensitive issues with candor.

    Importantly, the documentaion was appropriate, and theaccuracy of the text bears up.

    The content of the book was excellent, but the presentation was sloppy. Some of this appears to be from want of better editing, At times, the authoor seems to repeat himself. Other problems exist with the digital format. PIn particular, the footnote function is not working. (Typically, by tapping upon the footnote number embedded in the text, the reader is taken to the note's content, and tapping the number in the body of the footnote brings the reader back to the book. This was not the case for this book.)
    I guess it just goes to prove how spoiled I am by the Kindle system when it is working well.

  • Very detailed with references, it covers every aspect of the polish experience. It helped me to dispel some prejudice that I held about the holocaust, showing that it was not just a Jewish experience. The Polish people have endured some of the worst atrocities of World War II. This book also covers the Warsaw uprising, and their betrayal by the Russian army.

  • Excellent fair and balanced account of the Real Holocaust and how different factions reacted. Very bad time for the Christian Polish folks, facts you never hear about.

  • While most people are familiar with the Nazi Holocaust perpetrated against the Jews in Europe in the Second World War, fewer people are aware that Hitler's homicidal policies extended to the Polish people, as well. Author Richard C. Lukas does an excellent job depicting the nature of the German occupation of Poland in 1939-1944, which resulted in the death of over 3 million Polish citizens who were not Jews. For example, many readers will be surprised to find that the first mass executions committed by the Nazis during the war were against Polish intellectuals and clergy in late 1939 and that the first victims gassed at Auschwitz were Polish civilians. The author also puts a great deal of effort into examining the state of Polish-Jewish relations under the German occupation, as well as the development of the Polish resistance. Overall, this book should help to ameliorate some of the erroneous historiography that has evolved over the years about the Holocaust and lead to a more nuanced view of that catastrophic event.

    Forgotten Holocaust consists of seven chapters, beginning with a discussion of the German occupation of Poland. This section details German atrocities against the Poles from A to Z, including street-executions, round-ups, kidnappings, etc. The author also makes the point about how troubling it was for this deeply Catholic country to have their pleas ignored by the pro-German pope in Rome (although the author goes easy on Pope Pius XII - easier than he deserves). In the end, 22 percent of Poland's population died during the German occupation - the greatest percentage loss of any nation in the Second World War. The second chapter covers the Polish Government in Exile and the origins of the underground resistance. Although this chapter is short, it tells a great deal about the internal politics that affected the evolution of the Polish resistance - insights which are usually lacking from other histories that prevent a more homogenized appearance. Chapter three deals with military operations conducted by the underground. One number that I hadn't seen elsewhere was the large number of resistance fighters eliminated in 1942-44 by the Gestapo - upwards of 60,000. Chapter four covers civilian resistance and collaboration (or lack of). The author notes that unlike the German occupation in Western countries, the Germans made no effort to create a collaborationist government in Poland.

    Chapters five and six cover the relationship of Poles and Jews during the German occupation. The author strives to fight against the common mis-conception (aided by Steve Spielberg in Schindler's List) that the Polish Government was anti-Semitic and that Poles routinely collaborated with the Germans to annihilate the Jews. In this regard, the author is fairly successful in disputing these slanderous characterizations of Polish collaboration with the Holocaust, but he tends to go off the deep end in trying to refute every charge of anti-Semitism leveled against Poles in the Second World War. Clearly, there were cases where individuals Poles made statements or conducted acts that were inimical to Jewish interests (the author also notes the reverse as well, such as Polish Jews who joined the Anders Army to escape the Soviet Union and then deserted as soon as they reached Palestine). Furthermore, there is also little doubt that Polish Catholicism was reluctant to cooperate with Polish Jews who were openly sympathetic with Communism, viewing them as the vanguard of Soviet imperialism. The charges and counter-charges get a bit tedious in these sections and at best, the issue is left unresolved.

    The final chapter covers the Warsaw Uprising. Although not a blow-by-blow account, there was some interesting material herein about weapons stockpiles held by the Home Army, as well as some insight into the German leadership. Overall, this book adds to our understanding of the Second World War in Eastern Europe and should contribute to correcting some of the broad generalizations which have obscured the truth about Nazi extermination policies.

  • This reader has not forgotten. Thank you to Mr. Lukas. I am not even Polish but I read as much as I can on this subject. Wonderful history writing. G Kossow

  • Detailed history of Nazi terror in Poland... not taught in school or even history classes today.

  • This is a well written and very informative book on the Holocaust that many people choose to ignore, forget or deny. My parents were nazi persecuted Catholic Poles who never spoke about their experiences, so finding information on this subject always has been, and still is a tedious task - which is why I find this book to be a valuable addition to historical fact. This book enlightens the reader to the events of the Catholic Poles, the risks they took and the suffering they endured. The Holocaust was not an exclusively Jewish event as most people would care to believe. I am not done with the book yet, but reading so far has prompted me to give it a five star - six if I could. Recommended reading for anyone interested in the "other side" of this tragic time in history.
