The martyrdom of Jewish physicians in Poland: Studies by Dr. Leon Wulman and Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum. Research and Documentation by Dr. Leopold Lazarowitz and Dr. Simon Malowist. Edited by Louis Falstein.

New York: Published for the Medical Alliance-Association of Jewish Physicians from Poland by Exposition Press, 1963.

"Of the more than 3 million Jewish Poles that perished during the Holocaust, approximately 3,000 were physicians.  It was the goal of the Alliance members to memorialize those physicians who perished during the Holocaust. The published volume was the product of the work of the original members of the Alliance, the original US members and those physicians who successfully immigrated to the US after the Nazi invasion. Therefore, this volume can be likened to a yizkor book for Polish Jewish physicians....

"Part Three of the volume is entitled “Martyred Physicians”.  It is an alphabetical listing of 2,465 summaries of Polish physicians who were known to have perished or disappeared during the Holocaust.  Each listing has a short summary of basic biographical information about the physician and the details of the physician's death if known" (http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/0065_Polish_Martyred_Physicians.html, accessed 01-2017).
