A Warsaw Diary

Zylberberg, Michael

A story of one of the few survivors of the Warsaw Ghetto and of an underground existence in the non-Jewish part of the city during the Second World War. Based entirely on the author's original diary, rediscovered twenty years after the war, Michael Zylberberg tells of the ghetto uprising and the Polish uprising of General Bor-Komorowski; of the moral conflicts of the Poles who helped the Jews and those who betrayed them. There is valuable historical detail never before revealed, as in the chapters on the educationalist and martyr, Janusz Korczak and tales of the author's last-minute escapes and desperate games of bluff, when he posed as a Catholic and a Polish Officer.
