Resistance : the Warsaw Ghetto uprising by Israel Gutman( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 1,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On April 19, 1943, thousands of Nazi troops were given the order to remove all Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, a few square blocks sheltering the remnants of the half million or more Jewish citizens of Poland's capital, to the death camps of Treblinka and Auschwitz. They were to kill those who resisted. A few hundred of the trapped Jews, mostly teenagers, armed only with pistols, Molotov cocktails, and a few light machine guns, vowed to fight back. Resistance is the full story of the uprising and the events leading to it, told by a survivor of the battle who is now a world-renowned Israeli scholar of the Holocaust. Warsaw in the 1920s and 1930s was the home of Europe's largest and most vibrant Jewish community. It included the rich, the poor, and the middle class; casual assimilationists and ardent Zionists; representatives of the full spectrum of political and religious factions. Then came the German onslaught of ruthless violence against the Jews--isolation and starvation amid desperation and disease--then deportations. As the ghetto walls rose, hundreds of thousands were rounded up and sent to Treblinka. But resistance began to take shape, and when the final attack order came, the ghetto fighters stood ready. Includes excerpts from diaries, letters, and other documents of the period

This album reveals how two SS photographers documented the arrival of shipments of Jews to the platform in the Birkenau concentration camp, the selection process, and their path to the gas chambers and the crematoria. The photographs also memorialize the piles of possessions left by the Jews which were sorted in the 'Canada' Barracks. They are accompanied by three articles that describe the development of the camp, the Holocaust of Hungarian Jewry, and the story of how the album was found; a fourth focuses on the camera as a historical tool.

Zum 60. Jahrestag der Befreiung des Konzentrationslagers Auschwitz Das Auschwitz-Album ist ein einzigartiges Dokument. Es zeigt aus der Perspektive der Täter einen einzigen Tag eines im Mai 1944 in Auschwitz angekommenen Transports ungarischer Juden. Systematisch photographiert ein SS-Mann die Menschen und hält alle Stationen dieses Tages von der Ankunft über die Selektion bis hin zum Warten vor den Gaskammern emotionslos fest. Diese Aufnahmen stellt er dann zu einem Album zusammen. Neben den Bildern in diesem Album existieren nur ganz wenige - heimlich gemachte - Photos aus Auschwitz aus den Kriegsjahren. Unter den Deportierten befindet sich auch Lili Jacob. Sie überlebt Auschwitz, im April 1945 wird sie nach Aufenthalt in weiteren Lagern im Konzentrationslager Mittelbau-Dora befreit. Nach einem Schwächeanfall wird sie in einem Zimmer in einer ehemaligen SS-Kaserne untergebracht. Dort entdeckt sie - es ist ein beinahe unglaublicher Zufall - eben dieses Album. Sie erkennt auf den Aufnahmen ihren Rabbiner, Verwandte und auch sich selbst. Lili Jacob nimmt das Auschwitz-Album an sich. 1980 übergibt Lili Jacob das Album zur Aufbewahrung und als ewiges Mahnmal der Gedenkstätte Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Dort gelingt es in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Museum Auschwitz durch intensive Nachforschungen, viele der Menschen auf den Photographien zu identifizieren und ihnen ihre Namen, ihre Einzigartigkeit und Individualität zurückzugeben. Auch darin liegt eine Besonderheit dieser Photo-Dokumentation. Der Wallstein Verlag veröffentlicht das Auschwitz-Album in Zusammenarbeit mit der Gedenkstätte Yad Vashem zum 60. Jahrestag der Befreiung des Konzentrationslagers Auschwitz-Birkenau am 27. Januar 2005
