Recent Comments "The Chronicle of the Lodz Ghetto, 1941-1944"

This book is not a light read. Life in the Lodz Ghetto is told by several writers in diary form. It's heartbreaking in it's acceptance of their fate and their ignorance of what really is happening when friends and neighbors are asked to "perform manual labor outside the ghetto". I'll never look at a potato peel the same.

I read this years ago and will re-read again as the history of the holocaust has overtaken my brain again. This was quite a unique book in the records as it was a "chronicle," not a diary, not a memoir but basically a ledger of the occurrences in the Lodz Ghetto written by the Jewish record keepers within the ghetto. The lack of emotionalism reflected in this book showed me the degree of numbness that a person can remove themselves from the horror of any situation.

Really the technical diary of the Ghetto's Jewish administration that maps out the day to day struggles of the people in the Lodz ghettos during WW2. Its a difficult and somber read filled with a lot of horror and sadness, but a must read to truly understand what it must have been like to live and die in such a horrible situation. Painful, but enlightening.

Day-to-day life in the Łódź Ghetto, fascinating and horrifying, particularly if you have read a little before this and a few of the names mean something. I can think of no better preface to this book than 'The Diary of Dawid Sierakowiak: Five Notebooks from the Lodz Ghetto', in my opinion the definitive Holocaust diary.

It is sad but i am not sure I can recall much of this. I saw a number of documentaries at the time, one of which featured Jerzy Kozinski and all of the details have merged and become rather murky.

He was the sweetest of men.
