At the end of the 1960s the Peoples Republic of Poland was plunged into an economical and domestic political crisis. In the light of the Six-Days-War of 1967 between Israel and the Arab states the regime in Warsaw took this war as an occassion to make an example of the few tens of thousands of Polish Jews, who had remained in the country after the Shoah, and to cast them as political scapegoats. As a result of an officially launched “anti-Zionist campaign”, more than 3.000 Polish Jews left Poland and chose Israel as their new homeland. There they encountered a society entangled in numerous conflicts: the war against the neighboring Arab states, the occupation of the Palestinian territories and the domestic tensions between European and oriental, secular and religious Jews. In this work, the author gives a historical and sociological ovierview and classification of the migration of Polish Jews to Israel. He also analyzes the psycholigical aspects of this migration. The migration experiences of several protagonists and their integration into the Israeli society of the 21st century are visualized in the attached documentary “There Is No Return To Egypt”.
