Dr. Grzegorz Rossoliński-Liebe investigates the Polish collaboration with the Germans during the Second World War. In contrast to the Polish resistance and the German occupation of Poland, the subject of the German-Polish collaboration has not yet been investigated in depth.
As a result, the knowledge about this complex and important subject is still fragmented, and a comprehensive understanding of the entire phenomenon is missing.
Despite studies devoted to issues such as the lack of political collaboration or the new studies about the murdering of Jews by Poles in the last stage of the Holocaust, we still do not know how widespread the German-Polish collaboration was, how many people were involved in it, which situations supported and prevented it, how it impacted the occupation policies of Nazi Germany, and how it contributed to the annihilation of Polish and European Jews.
Dr. Grzegorz Rossoliński-Liebe is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Friedrich-Meinecke-Institute of the Free University of Berlin. He is the author of “Stepan Bandera: The Life and Afterlife of a Ukrainian Nationalist: Fascism, Genocide, and Cult” and several articles on the Holocaust, The Second World War, fascism, anti-Semitism, and the politics of memory in East Central Europe.
