about

The “exhilarating” definitive account of the 1943 uprising in Poland’s capital, named a Best Book of the Year by Publishers Weekly and the Jewish Observer (Los Angeles Times).

 No act of Jewish resistance during the Holocaust fired the imagination quite as much as the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of April 1943. It was an event of epic proportions in which a group of relatively unarmed, untrained Jews managed to lead a military revolt against the Nazi war machine.
 
In this riveting, authoritative history, a Holocaust scholar and survivor of the battle draws on diaries, letters, underground press reports, and his own personal experience to bring a landmark moment in Jewish history to life—offering “a dramatic and memorable picture of the ghetto” and showing how a vibrant culture shaped the young fighters whose defiance would have far-reaching implications for the Jewish people (Library Journal).
 
“Superb, moving, richly informative history.” —Publishers Weekly
