Ghetto Diary

  • Janusz Korczak; With an introduction by Betty Jean Lifton


“Korczak’s diary reveals how a spiritual and moral man struggles to shield innocent children from the atrocities of the adult world in one of history’s darkest times.”—Betty Jean Lifton, from the introduction

“Korczak’s diary is a moving piece of literature and an indispensable insight into life inside the ghetto. The quality of his testimony, contemporaneous with the events he lived, is powerful, poignant, and moving.”—Michael Berenbaum

“A tribute to the enduring influence of this legendary figure of the Holocaust. . . . Particularly powerful for its simple eloquence, its empathetic voice and its advocacy for the children of the Warsaw Ghetto.”—Michael N. Dobkowski, Jewish Book World
