Summary"Hidden beneath the ruined, scorched earth of what had once been Warsaw's Jewish community headquarters lay a treasure buried deep—the diary of Dr. Hillel Seidman, chief archivist of the Warsaw Kehillah. A researcher, author, and, above all—a devoted observant Jew, Dr. Seidman kept a faithful account of Warsaw's last days, from the deportations to the final Uprising. The Warsaw Ghetto Diaries, impounded by the Gestapo and miraculously rescued from their bloody hands, hidden in the cellar of Zamenhof 19, and finally, with war's end, unearthed—the last survivors of that terrible moment in Jewish history—remain a testament to the unflinching courage and unyielding faith of the Jewish heroes of Warsaw." —Back cover
