Although numerous writings have referred to Polish-Jewish relationships since the end of the Second World War, they have mainly focused on the Polish reaction toward the Jews, whilst the Jewish position toward the Polish society was somewhat neglected. The following paper is aimed to assess the Polish image held by Polish Jews during the war as it is reflected in the Jewish Underground Press in Warsaw. Based on articles published by political parties, youth movements and underground organizations from the Warsaw Ghetto the way Jews viewed, defined and thought about their surroundings during the war is uncovered. Tracing these images raises questions regarding Jews, Poles and their relationship.
