The Polish Patriot by Uri Jerzy Nachimson


the polish patriot history book

The Polish Patriot is a new book about courage, hope, adaptation and surviving against all odds. The book illustrates in a very tangible way the occurrence of the second world war, and allows you to understand that giving up was not an option, there was always light at the end of the tunnel, even when it seems impossible.

About the Book:

A Polish patriot, who renounced his country, which had betrayed him and his people. Jews had lived in Poland for nearly one thousand years and helped shape its culture and industry. His family was well endowed with professionals. His father was a distinguished lawyer who worked for the Ministry of Finance. The war destroyed his world, interrupted his dreams and forced him to deal with new realities. His loyalty and love for the old Poland that he knew so well slowly began to fade when he discovered that his nationalism was based on misconceptions about his Polish "brethren." The Nazi occupation gave his Polish neighbors a golden opportunity to get rid of the "Dirty Jews" and enabled them to steal their property. Many readily collaborated with the Nazis during the war, and there were even those who killed many survivors after the war. Although he unwillingly renounced his old homeland, nevertheless, he loved its culture and lived as a Pole in his new country until his death at age ninety-three

About the Author:

Born in Stettin, Poland, in 1947. Immigrated with his parents to Israel as an infant. At the age of 18 he joined the Israeli army and served in the infantry, participated in the Six Day War as a photographer in combat.

After three years of military service went to London for a year and then moved to Italy to study medicine at the University of Padua. He never graduated, after deciding that it was not his direction in life, but went on living in Italy on and off for sixteen years.

He likes challenges - in 1968 he bought an old car and drove to Prague to demonstrate against its occupation by the Red Army. He travelled around the world - Egypt, Poland, Mexico, USA, Turkey and all European countries.

For years researched the history of the Jewish people and especially the Holocaust period and anti-Semitism. He visits Poland from time to time, writes about those issues for numerous sites in Hebrew, and his book "The Polish Patriot" deals with the subject of that terrible war.

Uri lives in Tuscany, married with three children and five grandchildren.
