SummaryNoemi Judkowski's memoirs of the Warsaw Ghetto and the Majdanek and Auschwitz concentration camps. Leon Komar writes, "After studying at the Polytechnic in Warsaw and gaining practical experience designing and building bunkers in the Ghetto, Noemi became a very successful architect. With work in her own kibbutz of Lohamei Hagetaot and elsewhere, she had very little time for writing. Finally, realizing that her memoirs may have historical and educational merit, she consented, and this book was born. The book also reproduces a number of the author's sketches of scenes from Majdanek and Auschwitz. These are from a series of drawings she made some years ago, and which have been exhibited in the Museum of the Lohamei Hagetaot kibbutz." Preface, page 5
