Generally true , of course. But it was possible for some to get out of the
Polish Army. I was in a unit of the British Army in 1945 when two Jewish
soldiers were attached to us who had been in the Polish Army. They,
along with other Jewish soldiers in that army, were allowed to join the
British Army because they had been harrassed in the Polish Army. Before
D-Day they were told that the first bullets would be for the Jews among
them.
