Life in the Ghettos
During the Holocaust

 
 
Edited by Eric J. Sterling

Paper $45.00s    |    0-8156-0803-9    |   2004

A collection of sixteen essays by Holocaust survivors and renowned scholars which focus on Jewish life before the camps.

Description
Unlike many Holocaust books, which deal primarily with the concentration camps, this book focuses on Jewish life before Jews lost their autonomy and fell totally under Nazi power. These essays concern various aspects of Jewish daily life and governance, such as the Judenrat, the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, religious life, housing, death, smuggling, art, and the struggle for survival while under siege by the Nazi regime.

Written by survivors of the ghettos throughout Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary, this collection contains historical and cultural articles by prominent scholars, an essay on Holocaust theatre, and an article on teaching the Holocaust to students.
