Book Reviews subjugation of the Polish nation. Catholics need candidly to admit the role classical Christian antisemitism played in supporting those in the Church who became collaborators and bystanders. But we must maintain some distinction between the two. Classical Christian antisemitism aimed to make Jews miserable and marginal. Nazi ideology advocated total annihilation. Neither is morally defensible. But there is a difference.

It will not, and should not, find its way onto serious bibliographies on the topic. Others--John Morley, Michael Phayer, Michael Marrus--have done a far more substantive job in their narratives.
