This chapter concerns Yaffa Eliach’s There Once Was a World: A 900-Year Chronicle of the Shtetl of Eishyshok (1998). This work has received considerable praise for its attempt to reconstruct the lost world of the author’s native town. At the same time its picture of relations between Jews and non-Jews, and in particular of the behaviour of the principal Polish resistance movement, the Armia Krajowa (Home Army, AK), towards the Jews of the area during and after the Second World War, has been widely criticized. The chapter thus presents two views of this complex and difficult issue. The first view is done by Sarunas Liekis and the second is covered by John Radziłowski.
