In his comprehensive examination of the Lódz Ghetto, originally published in Yiddish in 1962, historian Isaiah Trunk sought to describe and explain the tragedy that befell the Jews imprisoned in the first major ghetto imposed by the Germans after they invaded Poland in 1939. Lódz had been home to nearly a quarter million Jews. When the Soviet military arrived in January 1945, they found 877 living Jews and the remains of a vast industrial enterprise that had employed masses of enslaved Jewish laborers. Based on an exhaustive study of primary sources in Yiddish, Hebrew, Polish, German, and Russian, Isaiah Trunk, a former resident of Lódz, reconstructs the organization of the ghetto and discusses its provisioning; forced labor; diseases and mortality; crime and deportations; living conditions; political, social, and cultural life; and resistance. Included are translations of the 141 documents that Trunk reproduced in his volume.</P>

This book was well researched. Not only does it describe what life in the ghetto was like, but the hope of the people that by working they might survive,tragically that was not to be.

The Lodz ghetto in Nazi occupied Poland is still notorious for the appalling mortality rate of it's Jewish population. Less than one percent of the men women and children who were kept there survived the war, and at various points while reading this book I found myself asking how the head of the Lodz Jewish Council (Judenrat), Chaim Rumkowski, should have been dealt with if he survived the war. I know he was forced into his situation but in time he took to his work with extreme dilligence, having his Jewish police round up the quota of deportees, lying to the people about their fate and keeping the machinery of death running like a well-oiled machine right up until his own execution. What do Rumkowski and Eichmann have in common? They never personally killed anybody. What else? They made it possible for many, many innocent people to be killed. It is of course a very thorny issue, but any open minded reader will find themselves asking similar questions. The author has performed a valuable service to objective historians.
