Terrible, oftentimes horrific first-person accounts of Wyszogrod's Jewish community going through World War II.  They are lovingly laid out side by side with recollections about the community's vibrant Jewish life before the war.  Many are hard to read and tell the personal stories of people going through the Holocaust in Poland. 

This book and the Israeli Wyszogrod Association made an effort in 1971 to translate some of the material into English and Yiddish.  This small portion of the book conveys some of the spirit of the articles, and leave room for keeping translating the remaining majority of material for future generations.
