Underground: The Story of a People, by Joseph Tenenbaum
This book includes a cursory thousand-years history of the Jews in Poland until the German occupation, the story of the life and death of Polish Jewry under the Germans, and, finally, the author’s personal reminiscences of his native pre-war Poland and of a trip there in 1946. With minor revisions and additions, a good two-thirds of the book was published in 1948 under the title In Search of a Lost People: The Old and the New Poland. Only eight of the present twenty-seven chapters are entirely new.
