The texts deals primarily with two issues: means of support of the Jews who, despite the German's will, found themselves outside specifically designated areas (ghettos, camps), and the economic situation of the Aryan population, whose help was necessary for their survival on the 'Aryan side'. The author describes the process of gradual reduction of property remaining in Jewish hands, and, in part, the phenomenon of taking over the property of those already exterminated. The sources of legal and illegal income to cover maintenance are identified. The author indicates the dynamics of predatory exploitation of Polish territories by the German occupier and concludes that an overwhelming majority of Aryan but non-German inhabitants of Poland, during the mass escapes of Jews from the ghettos and camps (1942-1943), were not in a position to offer them long-term, disinterested material help. The article deals with both those offering help for humanistic reasons and those who treated the Jews as a source of additional income, either fulfilling the arrangements or failing to do so to the detriment of the Jewish contractors.
