When the walls of the Warsaw Ghetto first went up in November 1940, Emmanuel Ringelblum was there. In the face of horrendous persecution and palpable danger, his goal was to create a written record of life in the Ghetto, not just the destitution and brutality of life under Nazi rule, but out of the shining acts of nobility and heroism by people under the most dire circumstances.

From Inside the Ghetto, Ringelblum, a well-respected historian and archivist, compiled his journal recording daily life in the Ghetto, from its beginnings to the eve of the Ghetto uprising in April 1943. Using accounts and anecdotes from his many friends and neighbours, Ringelblum created a detailed, colourful, and emotional record of one of the most terrible epochs in human history.

Notes from the Warsaw Ghetto is an unflinching, first-hand account of history unfolding before your very eyes.

In looking for the reality of the Jewish Ghetto's during WWII, I cannot think of a better source than an eyewitness account. It's harsh, it's real, it's biting, and a true testament to a time in history where humanity really did to seem to fail completely. Read full review
