Before he killed himself in 1942, Czerniakow was for almost three years the Nazi-sponsored mayor of the Warsaw Ghetto--yet a Jew, devoted to his people. This secret journal is not only the testimony of an unbearable personal burden but the documentary of the Ghetto's terminal agony. It is the most important diary to emerge from the Holocaust. A tale of Kafkaesque horror. --Houston Chronicle
