New York, NY, U.S.A.: Little Brown & Company, 1997. New York: Little Brown, 1997. First edition, second printing. Cloth binding, 254 pp. This abundantly illustrated book brings together unique materials from Lithuania, Israel, and the United States to present an unforgettable view of Jewish life, loss, survival, and defiance during the Holocaust. As the German army swept through the Baltic States on its march to Leningrad in the summer of 1941, its troops and accompanying killing squads sought out and murdered tens of thousands of Lithuania's Jews. The Nazis forced more than 29,000 Jews into a ghetto within the city's rundown district of Vilijampole. For three nightmarish years, the Kovno Ghetto endured as forced labor for the German occupiers, while those who remained mourned families and friends lost to mass murders and deportations. This visual and documentary record begins with two essays that describe the German assault on Lithuania's Jewry and the Kovno Jews' resilient yet ultimately futile efforts to devise a "normal" world in the ghetto. The book concludes with a Kovno Ghetto survivor's personal reminiscence and a historian's reflection on the experience. . First Edition. Cloth. New/New. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
