From the age of fifteen, as the German army poured into Poland, Mary Berg kept a day-to-day diary. For the first time since 1945, this heartrending, vivid portrayal of ghetto life is available to a global audience. This astonishing record of life inside the Warsaw Ghetto ranks with the most significant documents of the Second World War. Here Mary Berg candidly chronicles not only the daily deprivations and mass deportations, but also the resistance and resilience of the inhabitants, their secret societies, and the youth at the forefront of the fight against Nazi terror. Above all it is a uniquely personal story of a life-loving girl's encounter with unparalleled human suffering, offering an extraordinary insight into one of the darkest chapters of history.
