Description: In the late 1960s, after the Holocaust had brought about the almost total destruction of centuries of Jewish civilization in Poland, senior leaders of the ruling Communist Party initiated a domestic terror campaign that resulted in the unceremonious eviction of thousands of Polish Jews. Why did the leadership of a nation that professed equality among all peoples suddenly drive them into exile? In Forced Out, Arthur Wolak explores this turbulent era, revealing a period in modern European history that offers important lessons about the dangers of political opportunism and the inherent evils of totalitarianism.
Surveying the Jewish experience in Poland from the reign of Poland's kings to the present day, Forced Out details this important yet little-known era in Poland, a nation that has since broken through the Iron Curtain to emerge as one of the West's staunchest allies as a member of NATO and the European Union.
