Description
"[This] book was first published in the U.S. in 1945 as Warsaw Ghetto: A Diary, and now it is in an expanded edition. The author, a Jew, was 15 when Hitler invaded Poland in 1939. From then until she arrived in the U.S. with her parents and sister in March 1944, [Mary] Berg kept a diary recounting her years in the Warsaw ghetto, prison detention in Warsaw, internment in France, and the trip aboard a mercy ship contracted by the U.S. Berg recorded her eyewitness account in 12 notebooks that she smuggled out of Europe. In describing the ghetto, for instance, Berg wrote, 'In the streets, frozen human corpses are an increasingly frequent sight. Many mothers often sit with children wrapped in rags from which protrude red frostbitten little feet. Sometimes a child huddles against a mother, thinking that she is asleep and trying to awaken her, while, in fact, she is dead.' The richness of Berg's memories and the intensity of her experiences record for posterity a chilling account of childhood during the Holocaust."Booklist
