Martyrs and Fighters: The Epic of the Warsaw Ghetto, edited by Philip Friedman
Martyrs and Fighters, as far as I know, is the first attempt in English to give a connected account of the life and death of the Warsaw Ghetto. Dr. Philip Friedman, a historian of Polish Jewry and a survivor of the German occupation of Poland, has chosen to let the documents speak for themselves; his book consists of judicious excerpts from about forty contemporary and eyewitness accounts arranged under appropriate subject headings and joined together by brief editorial comments. With such a work in hand, it is possible to hope that some historian may soon present us with a full-scale history of the Warsaw Ghetto.
