Wartime Rescue of Jews

by the Polish Catholic Clergy

Rescue activities on behalf of Jews were carried out by priests, nuns and monks in more than one thousand Roman Catholic Church institutions throughout Poland during World War II. The number of priests and religious involved in these activities was many times higher.
This effort is all the more remarkable since Poland was the only country under Nazi Germany occupation where any form of assistance to Jews was routinely punishable by death. Several dozen members of the Polish clergy were executed for this reason.
It must also be borne in mind that the Polish Catholic clergy were the only Christian clergy who were systematically surveilled, persecuted, murdered and imprisoned by the thousands as a result of Nazi genocidal policies.
This selection of accounts of rescue is far from comprehensive, as there are several hundred additional cases yet to be entered. It has been compiled by The Polish Educational Foundation in North America (Toronto) and is posted on the Internet at:
