This chapter examines several aspects of the lives and experiences of the survivor community in Poland. Much has been written about relations between the new regime in Poland and the Jewish survivors, the formation of the relief committees, the political entities, the beriḥah (‘flight’) apparatus, and the revitalization of youth and political movements. The main characteristic in any historical analysis of a collectivity’s daily life is an examination of long-term processes taking place within the society in question. Such a perspective, however, does not apply to the situation of the Jewish survivors in Poland. The most consistent factor in their lives was instability; theirs was a life of reconstruction and entrenchment within a reality of deconstruction and departure.

Keywords:   Polish Jews, survivor community, Jewish survivors, Poland, instability, Lublin, Kielce
