Summary/Abstract: The set contains correspondence of the chief of the Jewish division of the Information and Propaganda Bureau of the Home Army High Command, Henryk Woliński, “Wacław” with Adolf Berman. Eight letters were written by Woliński, one by Berman. The letters are kept in the Beit Lohamei Hagetaot archive. They contain plenty of information regarding the contacts between Żegota and the Jewish National Committee and the Home Army and the Government Delegate Office from January to July 1944 (one letter of February 1943). The letters also contain information regarding the personal relations between the two. Woliński’s correspondence with Berman has been supplemented by two materials. The first are reports written on the spot, sent by Adolf Berman to the presidium of the Council to Help the Jews concerning the circumstances of Berman’s blackmail of 4 January 1944. Another supplement dated 1957 is Henryk Woliński’s letter to the then director Bernard Mark. It is one of the few post-war accounts by Woliński. None of the documents have been published before.
