It was time to patch things up with the Polish Catholic church. When the Germans captured Cardinal Hlond in 1943 as he tried to make his way from France back to Poland, they promised to free him if he would inspire the Polish people to join Germany in the fight against the common enemy, Bolshevist Russia. The Holocaust is understood to be the systematic extermination of European Jewry. Before it occurred or had even been planned, genocide occurred against the Polish people at large (including some Jews).
8 Jews, it is true, ranked even lower than Poles in Himmler’s absurd racial classifications, but non-Jewish Poles posed the greater problem because of their number and cultural dominance. ”10 During the course of the war, more than 2,000 concentration camps dotted the Polish countryside. There Poles died from overwork and starvation. Until 1942 there were more Gentile Poles in Auschwitz than Jews, and Poles were deported to slave labor camps elsewhere, such as Dachau, Sachsenhausen, and the infamous Mauthausen camp in Austria.
10 In this way it happened that one of the very first Jewish colonies to be deported from its homeland took place in a Catholic country as a result of cooperation between the Ustashi and the Nazis. Genocide in Croatia began in earnest after the German army pulled out of the country in June 1941 to participate in Operation Barbarossa, Germany’s surprise attack on Russia. With the Ustashi in complete control of Croatia, large-scale massacres took place in July and August. Historian Jonathan Steinberg describes the bloodletting: Serbian and Jewish men, women and children were literally hacked to death.
