FORTHCOMING: PROTECTING PHYSICAL SAFETY OF JEWS IN POST-WAR POLAND

Special Commissions at the Central Committee of Jews in Poland

The author presents little-known aspect of the history of the Jews who survived the Holocaust: the establishment of the Special Commission at the Central Committee of Jews in Poland after the Kielce Pogrom. It was aimed to protect physical safety of the Jewish people and it certainly did the task well, in a significant way contributing to the improvement of the situation of the survivors. Shortly, however, after the parliamentary elections in 1947, it was disbanded in rather dramatic circumstances. Dr Alina Cała — researcher at the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute; author of many publications dedicated to broadly defined relations between the Jewish minority and Polish majority in the 19th and 20th centuries, including: Asymilacja Żydów w Królestwie Polskim 1864–1897: postawy, konflikty, stereotypy (Assimilation of Jews in the Kingdom of Poland 1864–1897: Attitudes, Conflicts, Stereotypes) (Warsaw 1989); Wizerunek Żyda w polskiej kulturze ludowej (Image of the Jew in Polish Folk Culture) (Warsaw 1988, 1992, 2005); Żyd wróg odwieczny? Antysemityzm w Polsce i jego źródła (The Jew — Perennial Enemy? Anti-semitism in Poland and Its Sources) (Warsaw 2012).
