Shoah by Claude Lanzmann( Visual )
4 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in French and English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The number of people that lived through the Second World War and the Holocaust dwindles significantly every day. Shoah--a Hebrew word variously translated as annihilation, cataclysm, chaos, or catastrophe--approached the tragedy of the Holocaust in a new and novel way: no archival footage, no newsreels, no black and white still photographs. There are instead interviews with ordinary people speaking in ordinary voices of days that had become ordinary to them: Jewish survivors, former Nazis, Polish peasants, American scholars, and others. Each person describes details which are woven together to present a Holocaust much larger and much more complicated than a viewer could begin to imagine. It is not a documentary, not journalism, not propaganda, not political. It is an act of witness
The Great Powers and Poland : from Versailles to Yalta by Jan Karski( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
<Span style=""line-height:13pt""><span>This definitive study provides a comprehensive diplomatic history of Poland during the most seminal period in its existence, when its destiny lay in the hands of France, Great Britain, and the United States. Although sovereign in principle, Poland was little more than an object of the Great Powers' politics and rapidly changing relationships from the end of WWI to the end of WWII. Enriched by unique anecdotes and archival material, the book ends with Poland's tragic abandonment by the West into the hands of the Soviet Union.</span></span>

Zygielbojm's death by Dżamila Ankiewicz( Visual )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Szmul Arthur Zygielbojm was a brilliant Polish Jew, an important member of Warsaw's Jewish Bund in the years leading up to the Nazi occupation. In 1942 he was smuggled to Belgium, New York, and London as the Jewish representative of the Polish Government-in-exile. His mission was to inform those governments of the Nazi horrors in Poland. His extensive efforts to influence high ranking members of each government were futile. Frustrated, he considered his efforts a failure. On May 12, 1943, one day after the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising ended, Zygielbojm committed suicide to shock the world out of its indifference. This tragic story is related by Zygielbojm's brother Reuven, who travels to today's Warsaw and London exploring the facts of Zygielbojm's life and the significance of his death. Among those interviewed are Jan Karski, the famous "Messenger from Poland", and Marek Edelman, the doctor who organized the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. "The production uses stills, archival footage, as well as contemporary video to present the story. All are of very good to excellent quality." MC Journal; The Journal of Academic Media Librarianship
