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

22 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,241 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

Unequal victims : Poles and Jews during World War Two by Israel Gutman( Book )

10 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Denies the claim that Poles and Jews in occupied Poland were in a similar position and that, as a result, the Poles were unable to help the persecuted Jews. Their failure to help the Jews arose from prewar antisemitic attitudes. Many Poles benefited from Jewish abandoned property and the elimination of economic competition, and public satisfaction with German policy was reported by the Delegate's office, the representative of the exiled Polish government. Neither the office nor the Polish underground leadership included Jewish representatives. The Sikorski government in London, more sensitive to Western opinion, included two Jewish representatives and made declarations condemning the mass murder of Jews but gave little material help, partly due to pressure by extremist right-wing groups. Other chapters discuss the Council for Aid to Jews (Żegota), antisemitism in the Anders Army, and antisemitism and pogroms after the liberation
