Poland under German Occupation is one of the most innovative, modern and well thought-out books about the German occupation of Poland during WWII that I have had the possibility to read in the last few years” • Jerzy Kochanowski, Warsaw University

“This is an impressive volume, marked by detailed research and new approaches, [it] provides important new information on the Nazi occupation of Poland and elucidates the context in which the mass murder of the Jews took place. The brutal nature of this occupation emerges clearly as does the way the conflicts it engendered made Polish-Jewish collaboration very difficult to achieve.” • Antony Polonsky, Brandeis University and POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, Warsaw


As a unique and innovative addition to the scholarship on Nazi Germany, the Holocaust, and modern Polish history, this volume provides fresh analysis on the Nazi occupation of Poland. Through new questions and engaging untapped sources the leading historians who have contributed to this volume provide original scholarship to steer debates and expand the historiography surrounding Nazi racial and occupation policies, Polish and Jewish responses to them, persecution, police terror, resistance, and complicity.

Jonathan Huener is Professor of History, Leonard and Carolyn Miller Distinguished Professor of Holocaust Studies, and Director of the Carolyn and Leonard Miller Center for Holocaust Studies at the University of Vermont.

Andrea Löw is Deputy Director of the Center for Holocaust Studies at the Institute for Contemporary History, Munich, and teaches at the University of Mannheim. In 2022 she was the J.B. and Maurice C. Shapiro Senior Scholar in Residence at the Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
