KIRKUS REVIEW

The inhuman story of the Warsaw ghetto, of individual incident and mass murder in what is probably the most extensive concentrated brutality of this age -- told by Henry Shockes, who lived through it, to Curt Riess. The fall of Warsaw in 1939 -- the early weeks of unrestricted reprisals -- the establishment of the Ghetto -- the solution of the housing shortage within the wall death decreased the numbers. Then the second phase of extermination, of random killing by the hundreds, of deportation to the death camps where ""bath houses"" gas chambers, freight cars and line pits varied and simplified wholesale liquidation. Finally -- in 1942 -- the choice of organised revolt was made...This is the first full account of a calvary which has been met with suppression -- or indifference. Not pleasant bedtime reading, but a record which should be read.
