“There is no doubt that from the very beginning of their occupation the Nazis were intent on destroying Poland as a nation, and in his absorbing account of wartime Poland, Richard Lukas outlines the variety of means that they employed for that purpose.” —The New York Review of Books
“Lukas tells the story with an outrage properly contained within the framework of a scholarly narrative.” 
Washington Post
“A superior work.” —Library Journal
“An eloquent, gripping account.” —Publishers Weekly

Forgotten Holocaust has become a classic of World War II literature. As Norman Davies noted, “Dr. Richard Lukas has rendered a valuable service, by showing that no one can properly analyze the fate of one ethnic community in occupied Poland without referring to the fates of others.  In this sense, The Forgotten Holocaust is a powerful corrective.” The third edition includes a new preface by the author, a new foreword by Norman Davies, a short history of ZEGOTA, the underground government organization working to save the Jews, and an annotated listing of many Poles executed by the Germans for trying to shelter and save Jews.
