He organized help for Poles detained there, and, under the cover of the Home of the Orphans of Polish Officer, he also helped to save Jewish children. Henryk Slawik and his associated helped save over 5,000 Jews, who were issued legal documents confirming their Polish roots and Roman Catholic faith.
