Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For the interested academic, and indeed for all those committed to obtaining a greater knowledge of the relationship between the Poles and the Polish-Jewish community, [Polin] ... should be a welcome addition to any library shelf." Jewish Book News and Reviews

"'No comparable journal exists and Polin is to be emphatically recommended to all students of Polish and Jewish history." Lionel Kochan, British Book News

"This journal is perhaps the most valuable source book on Polish-Jewish relations. This volume comes closer to objectivity than any similar work I have read. Mr. Anthony Polonsky and the Institute for Polish-Jewish Studies, Oxford, are to be congratulated for this scholarly contribution to the promotion on understanding among people. I sincerely recommend it to all who are interested in the history of Poland. I urge all Polish-American organizations to donate a copy to their local library." Polish-American Journal
