Слишком поляки для Советов, слишком евреи для поляков: польские евреи в СССР в 1939-1945
The article examines the fate of Polish Jews who found themselves under the Soviet rule after the USSR incorporated Eastern Poland in 1939. The articles investigates, on the one hand, Soviet policies towards new citizens, methods of their Sovietizations, and, on the other hand, the fight against "foreign elements," including deportations. The starting point for the analysis are interviews with three Polish Jews published in this issue of Ab Imperio, situated in the historical context and juxtaposed against witness reports of other Polish Jews who went through the Holocaust and WWII. The fate of Polish Jews who returned to Poland after the end of the WWII is also analyzed.
