Overview

This memoir tells the story of the Jewish resistance fighters in the Warsaw Ghetto who defied the Nazis against impossible odds. Kazik and his fellow Jews smuggled in arms and explosives, performed acts of resistance, held off the Nazi army for almost a month, and rescued the few surviving Jews after the Ghetto was destroyed. Kazik spent the rest of the war helping Jews who still remained in Warsaw, joining the Poles during their ill-fated uprising against the Nazis, and assisting the Polish underground. This tale of courage should change forever the image of how Jews fought and survived during the Holocaust.
