This book was made possible by a generous grant from the Eli and Diana Zborowski Chair in Interdisciplinary Holocaust Studies at Yeshiva University, which also sponsored the conference which produced the present volume. My special thanks go to Eli and Diana Zborowski, founders of the chair, for their model leadership in the cause of remembrance as well as for their support for Holocaust studies. The majority of papers in this volume were first presented at an international conference, “Polish-Jewish Relations during the Holocaust and After: New Perspectives,” held at Yeshiva University in April 2000. My heartfelt thanks go to the conference participants, to all the contributors to this volume, as well as to Professors Arthur Hyman and Jeffrey S. Gurock, my colleagues at Yeshiva University's Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies, who provided encouragement, advice, and intellectual companionship during all stages of this project. Lastly, I would like to thank Przemek Bartkiewicz, who has helped keep errors in the Polish language to a minimum, and Gwido Zlatkes, who translated chapters 17 and 18 from the Polish.
