9780030060021: Shielding the Flame: An Intimate Conversation With Dr. Marek Edelman, the Last Surviving Leader of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

Krall, a prominent Polish journalist, awakened Polish consciousness of a common Polish-Jewish heritage through publication in the 1970s of this interview with Marek Edelman, a leader of the 1943 Warsaw ghetto uprising against the Germans. This is the work's first English edition. Through anecdotes and reflections these discussions explore not the events but the memory of them and provoke thought concerning the nature and meaning of the individual and the manner in which we judge human conduct. After the war Edelman became a cardiologist and he comments that, "when one knows death so well, one has more responsibility for life." Fine reading for the thoughtful as well as the student of the era. Rena Fowler, Northern Michigan Univ. Lib., Marquette Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc.
