The Warsaw ghetto revolt by Reuben Ainsztein( Book )

13 editions published between 1979 and 1993 in English and German and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes Jewish life in the ghetto and analyzes the uprising in 1943. Emphasizes that the fact that thousands of ordinary people, and not only military organizations, took part in this revolt makes it a unique event, not only in the history of Jewish resistance, but in that of anti-Nazi resistance in all of Europe. States that the main difficulty to define the nature of the revolt lies in the very vague and limited knowledge of the real events in the ghetto during April-May 1943
The living and the dead by Konstantin Simonov( )

3 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The combination of traditional Tolstoyan verbiage with the time-worn universal theme of war has not prevented this Russian author (Days and Nights) and journalist from creating an intense and absorbing World War II documentary of the first months at Russia's Western Front, as the Germans advance relentlessly toward Moscow. More than an accurate, exciting record of the actual battles, retreats, and encirclements, the novel is meaningfully overcast with an aura of war--any war of any nation--not only its horrors, but its rewards, its spirit, and above all, its blind disregard for any ""disparity between the living and the dead"". In microcosm, the hero of the book is Vanya Sintsov, a young military journalist who joins the front ranks to fight, is wounded and captured, and escapes, but without his survival guarantee--the Party Card and Identity Papers. The struggle to redeem his official status as a soldier through his own actions takes him from unit to unit, from comrade to comrade, never doubting his country's victory, but often despairing at human nature. Sinstov, with all his faith and failings, is still only an opitome; it is the Russian Army and all its emergency supporters that is the true epic hero. Aided by Ainsztein's fine translation, Simonov has managed, in a gargantuan complex of characters and events, to capture that elusive dust that inexorably settles on a people at war. Long but rewarding--both for historical accuracy and artful fiction.-Kirkus Reviews
