4.2 of 5 stars 4.20  ·  rating details  ·  81 ratings  ·  8 reviews
Varsovan geton kansannousu keväällä 1943 oli ensimmäinen merkittävä juutalaisten vastarintatoimi saksalaisia vastaan. Epätoivoinen taistelu kesti peräti neljä viikkoa voimasuhteiden suuresta erosta huolimatta.

Saksalaiset miehittäjät olivat alkaneet tyhjentää Varsovan gettoa sen asukkaista, ja pieni ryhmä juutalaisia ryhtyi aseelliseen vastarintaan. Huonosti aseistautuneet

at first i had a bit of trouble with kurzman's technique of digression...
i arbitrarily use ellipses in my informal writing, a bad and pointless habit i mean to correct soon, but kurzman uses them to excellent effect as long as you realize what he's doing...
he will make a statement, usually one which describes a specific outcome, which ends with an ellipsis, and he will then move into a detailed digression away from the main story in order to provide exposition about how that outcome came to pass
I reread The Bravest Battle: The Twenty-eight Days of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising on the 70th anniversary of that epic fight, reading day-for-day from April 19th to mid-May. As I sat in the bright sunshine of a New Mexican spring, I tried to imagine what these men and women, boys and girls really, were going through 70 years earlier. But that is impossible really. I can’t imagine having my parents and young siblings holed up in an overcrowded bunker waiting for the National Socialists to dig them ...more

Dan Kurtzmanin "Varsovan geton kansannousu" (Art House, 2005) kuvaa niitä vajaata kolmeakymmentä päivää keväällä 1943, jolloin Varsovan geton juutalaiset nousivat aseelliseen vastarintaan SS:n kaavailemien pakkosiirtojen alla. Taistelu tiedettiin toivottomaksi jo sen käynnistyessä, mutta siitä huolimatta heikosti aseistautuneet juutalaiset pystyivät pitämään puoliaan ylivoimaista vihollista vastaan niin bunkkereissa, palavissa rakennuksissa kuin viemäreissäkin. Sanottavammin apua ei ollut tiedos ...more
Over the years I've read plenty of books about the Warsaw Ghetto uprising (at least in a non-academic list on this topic) and I found this book informative and easy enough to read. Not everyone would enjoy it but I did very much.
Heroism, brutality, tragedy, death, death, and more death ... I've read many books about the Holocaust, and this one was one of the most impacting. Because it is not one person's story; it is the story of thousands of residents of the Warsaw ghetto, some who dared to fight and others who just struggled every day to stay alive in the most impossible, inhuman conditions. I am inspired, I am saddened, and, as always, I am spurred to wonder: "What would I do?"

Good account of the resistance of Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto. One of the few times they fought back during the Holocaust. People smuggled arms and food in through the sewers. The Nazis had sealed off the ghetto and were attempting to exterminate them. Very few survived at the end.
Good, in fact, great account of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. Kurzman traces each day. Excellent.

Made me cry. A book which needs to be read, lest we forget.
