The Warsaw Diary of Adam Czerniakow: Prelude to Doom

The Warsaw Diary of Adam Czerniakow Before he killed himself in 1942, Czerniakow was for almost three years the Nazi-sponsored "mayor" of the Warsaw Ghetto yet a Jew, devoted to his people. This secret journal is not only the testimony of an unbearable personal burden but the documentary of the Ghetto s terminal agony. It is the most important diary to emerge from the Holocaust. "A tale of Kafkaesque horror." Houston Chronicle. Full description
