(I got this book free from LibraryThing Early Reviewers.) Whew! Just when you think you know everything... I've read many books about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising but this really opened my eyes.

The accepted story is this: After years of oppression and starvation the Jews of Warsaw, realizing they were all condemned to die, decided to at least take a few Nazis out with them.

An interesting read for people interested in this sort of thing.
