When a revolver appeared, a Jew suddenly became a man to be reckoned with Gutman s gutsy phrase is as fitting an epigraph as Simonides go tell the Spartans I wanted to love this book My hotel during my first visit to Warsaw the Hilton is sited in the middle of the old ghetto walking towards the historic center, I passed by pieces of wall and the sidewalks are marked by engraved bronze stripes, like the Berlin wall Nowadays, Israeli business seems heavily involved in the area s real estate development.So do I love this book Errthe book, yes, the author, not so much For a veteran of the Ghetto Rising he s often curiously detached when scetching life in the ghetto He needs passages from other survivors for flavour They are often drawn from books in Hebrew or Yiddish so they re very welcome in English They weave together a stark world where a man s worth depended on his money and the value of his labour openly than in today s world, the variety of experience took on an ever uniformly bleak look as the economic rapture by the Germans through the Judenrat overcame even the bountiful ingenuity of the smugglers Surprisingly, these were far from the only link with the Aryan world of occupied Warsaw the ghetto, for its walls and constantly guarded entrances, did not exist in a vacuum Money talks, money walks, no matter how large
Excellent detail I read the sections on Warsaw just after the German invasion, which is the period of the next section of my novel in progress. The best overall history of the Warsaw Ghetto I have read. an incredibly delicate, comprehensive portrait of life in the warsaw ghetto written by someone with a palpable love and reverence for the jewish people
