The Diary of Mary Berg: Growing up in the Warsaw Ghetto

by Mary Berg
£10.99   paperback  Oneworld Publications (2009)

The Diary of Mary Berg: Growing up in the Warsaw Ghetto by Mary Berg On her fifteenth birthday, as the German army tightens its grip on Warsaw, Mary Berg begins writing her diary. She does not yet know that by the time she has filled twelve small notebooks she will have endured four years of Nazi terror and recorded in vivid detail some of the most important events of the twentieth century.
 
From the siege of Warsaw to the final, brutal suppression of the Ghetto Uprising, she documents the plight of the refugees, the life of the nouveaux riches, the forced conscription, the deportations, and the heroism of the resistance fighters who rose up against German oppression. Rescued with her family through an allied prisoner exchange, Mary smuggled out of Warsaw the diary she had begun four years earlier. In doing so, she brought to light one of the most incredible documents of the Second World War – the uniquely personal story of a life-loving girl’s encounter with unparalleled human suffering, and an extraordinary insight into one of the darkest chapters of history.

"Berg’s powerful record of those terrible times is astonishingly lucid. The strength of her memories and the intensity of her experiences are naturally heart-breaking. This extraordinary, chilling memoir is essential reading for everyone."
