The Ładoś List gives details of people of Jewish origin who received fake passports from a group of Polish diplomats who aimed to save them from the German Nazis in World War II.

The book is named after Aleksander Ładoś, a Polish diplomat who during the war led an informal group based in Bern, Switzerland, which fabricated passports for Jews from ghettos in German-occupied Poland.

The Ładoś List was published in Polish in December by Poland’s Pilecki Institute. It contains the names of over 3,000 people of Jewish origin who obtained fake passports of neutral countries.

On Monday the book will be unveiled at the Wiener Holocaust Library in London.

The book will also be presented on February 27 at the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion in New York.

And on February 28 it will be the subject of a meeting at the Mandell JCC Innovation Center in the US state of Connecticut.
