Summary"The following collection of historical material is the first English publication of 'Beth Lohamei Haghettaot' (Ghetto Fighters' House). It includes documents, testimony and surveys published during recent years by 'Beth Lohamei Haghettaot' in various publications, and more particularly in the 19 issues of its own periodically issued Bulletin... In the present volume we have given preference to material that has hitherto appeared only in Hebrew or Yiddish... Hence there is not much on the extermination of the Jews of Central and Western Europe... Most of the material is connected with the Resistance Movement in Occupied Europe; for it is the... task of 'Beth Lohamei Haghettaot' to restore to memory and put on record every manifestation of a Jewish stand against the extermination plans of the Nazis. A brief account of the character and activities of the Ghetto Fighters' House will be found at the end of the volume." Front matter
