For jews in the ghetto hope that the tide will turn and that the red army will liberate them, poles nightmare is that germans will be defeated – polish underground must remain waiting, hold their fire, remain in tact waiting for moment of german retreat and weakness prior to soviet arrival and rise up to take control of their own country, resistance kept waiting for narrow window of opportunity. Jews are accused of passivity, if they try to resist accused of jumping the gun – nothing they can do to meet polish approval, jews are left to suffer fate alone To admit what was happening to jews would diminish what was happening to the poles, reluctance to share info on what is happening. Jews are left to die alone without their neighbors If there had been less threat of denunciation, if sharing forest had be more plausible more jews could have fled, in those ways some numbers could have been saved had there been more solidarity, had more weapons been snuck in to jews ghetto uprisings
