The Wiener Holocaust Library (German pronunciation: ) is the world's oldest institution devoted to the study of the Holocaust, its causes and legacies.

Mietek Sieradzki left his family and fled Nazi-occupied .

Mietek Sieradzki left his family and fled Nazi-occupied Poland to the Soviet Union, where he was deported to Siberia. Tough and harsh though life there was, he escaped the Holocaust in which his father and more than 90 percent of his extended family perished. This part of By a Twist of History includes the dramatic history of the Polish art treasures spirited out of Nazi-occupied Poland, and kept for many years in Canada. Their return to Poland during his term of office was the highlight of his career. The book then describes his work at a fairly senior level in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Warsaw, where he dealt with English speaking countries.

Before the Holocaust, Jews were the largest minority in Poland Jews had been living in Poland since at least the Middle Ages

Before the Holocaust, Jews were the largest minority in Poland. That did not mean that antisemitism did not impact the lives of Polish Jews, but Jews were part of Poland, and Polish culture was, in part, Jewish. When the Nazis set their sights on Poland, they sought to destroy all that was there and build it up again as a colonial homeland for Germans. Jews had been living in Poland since at least the Middle Ages. When Crusaders moved through Europe in the thirteenth century, Jewish refugees sought safety in Poland.

The Holocaust would claim the lives of his family and devastate the Jewish community of his childhood home.

Deeply affecting, But You Did Not Come Back confronts the history of the Holocaust and implores all of us to remember. But You Did Not Come Back. By Marceline Loridan-Ivens. The Holocaust would claim the lives of his family and devastate the Jewish community of his childhood home.

The Holocaust, also known as the Shoah, was the World War II genocide of the European Jews. Between 1941 and 1945, across German-occupied Europe, Nazi Germany and its collaborators systematically murdered some six million Jews, around two-thirds of Europe's Jewish population.

Mietek Sieradzki fled Nazi-occupied Poland to the Soviet Union, from where he was deported to Siberia. Life there was tough and harsh, but he escaped the Holocaust and after the war joined the Polish foreign service. He was posted in Moscow, London, Korea, Cambodia and Canada, in the latter two as head of mission. From the early stages of his career disillusionment with the system set in. In time his reluctance to conform and his Jewish origin made him a target for harassment by the secret services, and eventually the anti- Jewish campaign unleashed in Poland in 1968 ended his career and drove him out of the country. By a Twist of History describes Sieradzki's experiences at the time, and refutes the myth, wide-spread in Poland, that large numbers of Jews had worked in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and reflects on Polish anti-Semitism. Sieradzki and his family eventually settled in Britain to build a new life.
