‘Was there any way to help them in this desolation?’ Rescue of Jews in occupied Poland

“Were the Jews more desolate than other people dying? They were -although this is a statement beyond human understanding. Was there any way to help them in this desolation? Certainly yes, but only a few and to a very limited extent. There were people who tried to do it”.

– Władysław Bartoszewski
