Abstract:

A book compiled by the author's daughter, Renata Renee Kessler, about her father and his life, including his experiences in the Holocaust. Includes a diary (pp. 31-72) written during the years 1941-44 by Kessler, who was a lawyer in Lvov. He relates the general situation of the Jews in Lvov in 1941-42, after the Nazi occupation. Describes pogroms, killings and beatings, and conditions in the ghetto, and criticizes the role of the Judenrat which contributed to the passivity of the Jewish masses who did not undertake any acts of resistance. Pp. 93-110 contain a chapter by Kazimierz Kalwiński, whose father built a bunker on his property in the suburb of Lvov in order to hide Jews. 24 Jews survived in this bunker, among them Kessler and his wife. After the war, the Kessler family settled in the USA. In 1984 the Kalwiński family received the award of "Righteous among the Nations" from Yad Vashem.
