Rethinking Poles and Jews

Annamaria Orla-Bukowska is the co-author of Rethinking Poles and Jews: Troubled Past, Brighter Future, the 2007 book produced in collaboration with Robert Cherry of Brooklyn College and published in English as well as in Polish under the title Polacy i Żydzi – kwestia otwarta (pictured). It consists of a series of essays devoted to the subject of the Holocaust in Poland; one of the first books to address the negative assumptions and anti-Polish bias in the Holocaust literature. The book was described by Michael C. Steinlauf as "a ray of light amidst the acrimonious and generally uninformed polemics" and by Deborah Lipstadt as "a series of essays that pierce the stereotypes which have obscured historical reality".
