The establishment and liquidation of the Warsaw Ghetto has become an icon of the Holocaust experience, yet, remarkably, a full history of the Ghetto has never been written, despite the publication over some sixty years of numerous memoirs, studies, biographical accounts, and primary documents. The Warsaw Ghetto: A Guide to the Perished City is this history, researched and written with painstaking care and devotion over many years and now published for the first time in English. The authors explore the history of the ghetto's evolution, the actual daily experience of its thousands of inhabitants from its creation in 1940 to its liquidation following the uprising of 1943. Encyclopedic in scope, the book encompasses a range of topics from food supplies to education, religious activities to the Jundenrat's administration. Separate chapters deal with the mass deportations to Treblinka and the famous uprising. A series of original maps, along with biographies, a glossary, and a bibliography, completes this masterful work of restoration. The book includes three maps in good condition in the back pocket attached to the rear end page. This book is in fair condition. The dust jacket and hard back cover have some grey spotting and scratches and creasing to its edges caused by how it has been stored. Inside there is some very minor creasing to the top corner of the first few pages, some black marks to the page block, only visible when the book is closed and a slight curve to the back of the page block from where the pages have laid against the back pocket. The 906 pages themselves appear unread.Second-hand copies of this book elsewhere online in the same condition vary in price from £116 to over £700 pounds.
