Overview

"A precious record of Jewish life under Nazi rule." —New York Review of Books

"Not only the material for history; it is history itself, agonizingly, triumphantly alive." —Saturday Review

Warsaw resident Chaim Kaplan’s journal begins on September 1, 1939, the day the Nazi blitzkrieg stunned the world—the Jews of Poland most of all. It ends in August 1942, when Kaplan realized that the Nazi noose was around his neck. Today Kaplan’s diary stands as an extraordinary record of the Nazi destruction of Warsaw's Jewish community. It is as timely as ever.
