A revised edition of an extraordinary record of life in the Warsaw Ghetto, first published in 1945, before the end of World War 2. On her fifteenth birthday, as the German army tightens its grip on Warsaw, Mary Berg begins writing her diary. She does not yet know that by the time she has filled twelve small notebooks she will have endured four years of Nazi terror and recorded in vivid detail some of the most important events of the twentieth century. From the siege of Warsaw to the final, brutal suppression of the Ghetto Uprising, she documents the plight of the refugees, the life of the nouveaux riches, the forced conscription, the deportations, and the heroism of the reisitance fighters who rise up against German oppression. Rescued with her family through an allied prisoner exchange, Mary smuggled out of Warsaw the diary she had begun four years earlier. In doing so, she brought to light one of the most incredible documents of the Second World War- the uniquely personal story of a life=loving girl's encounter with unparalleled human suffering, and an extraordinary insight into one of the darkest chapters of history.
