This is an amazing book, very comprehensive, informative, and powerful. Life in the Ghettos During the Holocaust has some moving sections by Holocaust survivors like William Samelson, Charlotte Opfermann, Agnes Kadar (interviews with Hungary survivors) and Diane Plotkin (interviews with Polish survivors). My favorite chapter was the one by Samelson. These segments are magnificent and would be very helpful to students who want to learn from actual survivors what the Holocaust was like it would also be good for professors who teach the Shoah to students. The book also has in it some great chapters by John Roth, Stephen Feinstein, Michael Berenbaum, Eric Sterling, and Wendy Lower and others. One of the many things I like about the book is that it covers the Holocaust in Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, and even Shanghai. This is one of the best books about the Holocaust and would even make a great textbook for teachers.
