    schema:reviewBody ""In his comprehensive examination of the Lodz Ghetto, originally published in Yiddish in 1962, historian Isaiah Trunk sought to describe and explain the tragedy that befell the Jews imprisoned in the first major ghetto imposed by the Germans after they invaded Poland in 1939. Lodz had been home to nearly a quarter-million Jews, more than a third of the population of the city that was the center of Poland's textile industry. When the Soviet military arrived in January 1945, they found 877 living Jews and the remains of a vast industrial enterprise that had employed masses of enslaved Jewish laborers." "Between 1946 and 1950 in Warsaw and Lodz, Isaiah Trunk, a former resident of Lodz who was fluent in Yiddish, Hebrew, Polish, German, and Russian, examined records created by both Germans and Jews, including documents, statistics, newspapers, diaries, albums, and testimonies. Based on an exhaustive study of these primary sources, Trunk sought to discover and describe the course of events in the Lodz Ghetto and the travails of the more than 200,000 Jews who passed through it during its more than four-and-a-half years of existence. Trunk's detailed narrative and accompanying statistical analysis reconstruct the organization of the ghetto. Trunk discusses its provisioning; forced labor; diseases and mortality; crime and deportations; living conditions; political, social, and cultural life; and resistance. In addition to Robert Moses Shapiro's clear and accessible translation of Trunk's text, this first English-language edition includes translations of the 141 documents that Trunk reproduced in the original volume, a substantial essay by Israel Gutman on the distinctiveness of the Lodz Ghetto, a biographical sketch of Isaiah Trunk by Joseph Kermish, and 41 photographs from the collection of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum."--BOOK JACKET." ;
