This chapter provides a demography of the Jewish fugitives in Warsaw during the Holocaust, considering the Berman Archive. This archive contains the records of the Jewish National Committee (Żydowski Komitet Narodowy: ŻKN) and the personal papers of its chairman, Dr Adolf Berman. The documents from the Berman Archive that are of greatest interest to the chapter are lists of people who were receiving financial assistance from the committee. These lists contain, all told, some 7,500 individual entries, each consisting of some of the following information: name (of an individual or family group); number of people in the group; receipt number and amount received; age, or date, and place of birth; other identifying information such as occupation and place of origin; name of the responsible activist; and comments of various kinds. The interpretation of these documents requires some knowledge of the structure and function of the ŻKN and, indeed, of the whole organized effort to bring relief to Jews in hiding.
