About the project

Aleksander Błasiak, the Righteous Among the Nations Foundation from Wrocław, in cooperation with the Rafael Publishing House from Kraków, are preparing an album under the working title “A Look Overseas”, which intends to will remind English speakers that:

  • it was not Poland which started the Second World War,
  • during World War II, Poland was occupied by Germany and Russia, and the Polish government was in exile at that time,
  • there was no collaborative government in Poland, such as in France or Norway,
  • an efficient underground state operated in occupied Poland,
  • Poles fought and died on the fronts of World War II only on the side of the Allies,
  • there were no Polish SS formations, but there were French, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Dutch, Belgian and even British SS formations,
  • Poland was handed over to the influence of communist Russia as a result of the decisions of the great powers in Tehran in December 1943 – despite this, the Polish Army continued to fight on the side of the Allies until May 1945,
  • Poland during the Second World War was demolished by the Germans and robbed by the Russians,
  • there was no Marshall plan for Poland, Poles rebuilt Poland after the war with their own efforts,
  • Poland is now a country of success which, despite war damage and communism, was achieved through the efforts of Poles themselves.

It will not be a strictly historical book, but its content will consist of historical articles from American and English newspapers published in 1939-1945, in which foreign journalists write about Poland’s efforts during World War II and the struggle of Polish soldiers. They also describe how the Polish government-in-exile begged the Allies to do something about the slaughter of the Jewish people organized in Poland by the Germans.

The average American has the right not to believe in the history of Poland written by the Poles, so We need to show them what they wrote about us in the past. They cannot deny that.

So far, more than 1,100 articles have been collected from American, English, Australian and Canadian newspapers from 1939-1945 relating to Poland during the Second World War (including individual articles from later years).

Ultimately, about a hundred articles will be published in the album. In addition, the album will include photos from the war and copies of source documents.

The album will also contain information taken from multiple English books with the exact source of the information, and at the end there will be photos of modern Poland to illustrate what great work Poles did after the war. The publisher’s commentary on the articles will constitute only a small addition to organize the narrative and bind the message together.

The design of the album was made by a doctor from the Department of Visual Communication Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław, with particular emphasis on the cultural code specific to Americans.

The album will be released in the American US Letter format, in English with no Polish translation.

Who was Aleksander Błasiak

Aleksander Błasiak with his sons: Andrzej, Wiesław, Witold, Jerzy

Aleksander Błasiak was a railway worker. He lived in Jedlnia Letnisko near Radom. He commuted to work from Radom to Lublin every day. He had a wife, four sons. Moreover, during the occupation, his minor niece (whose mother, a Home Army liaison officer, caught with leaflets in Oświęcim) and another relative (sentenced in absentia for the death penalty for meat trade) lived with him, along with a several-year-old son.

Additionally, he hid a Jewish family of four throughout the occupation. He brought the father of this family from Lublin near Radom by train in the uniform of an SS man. During the occupation, a total of 13 people lived in the small house. It is impossible that the neighbors in the village of Jedlnia Letnisko near Radom did not know about Aleksander hiding Jews.
