Kazik: Memoirs of a Warsaw Ghetto Fighter

Simha Rotem Kazik, Barbara Harshav (editor)

This powerful and suspenseful memoir by one of the leaders of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising tells the moving story of the preparations for defense of the Ghetto, the battle with the Germans, the rescue of the few Jews still alive in the Ghetto after it was destroyed, and the organization’s support of the surviving Jews in Warsaw. This book will help demolish the image of Jews as submissive victims in the Holocaust.

“A first person narrative, this memoir is the most gripping account of wartime guerilla survival against all the odds that I have ever read. It is impossible to put down the book down.”-Robert Carver, The Scotsman
