Mary Berg was fifteen when the German army poured into Poland in 1939. She survived four years of Nazi terror, and managed to keep a diary throughout.

This astonishing, vivid portrayal of life inside the Warsaw Ghetto ranks with the most significant documents of the Second World War. Mary Berg candidly chronicles not only the daily deprivations and mass deportations, but also the resistance and resilience of the inhabitants, their secret societies, and the youth at the forefront of the fight against Nazi terror.

Above all The Diary of Mary Berg is a uniquely personal story of a life-loving girl s encounter with unparalleled human suffering, and offers an extraordinary insight into one of the darkest chapters of human history.

Review:

"Without qualification, this reviewer recommends Mary Berg's diary to everybody"

(The New York Times)

"A moving record of terrorism"

(Kirkus Reviews)

"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"

(Independent)

"One of the most important documents in the age of Hitler"

(San Francisco Chronicle)

"What makes her account stand out is her novelist's eye: this is not just a crucial historical document but a classic read."

(Scotsman)

"Mary Berg s diary records the dignity of man, his moral consciousness. Once again we are reminded that amid blazing homes, flame-swept streets and mass murders there were human beings who admitted no defeat."

(The New York Times)

"Direct, sharp-eyed and full of compelling detail, this Diary is both a major resource for historians and a richly compelling human document"

Book Description Oneworld Publications. PB. Condition: New. In 1939, when Mary Berg (Miriam Wattenberg) was barely 15, she and her family were moved from their town of Lodz, Poland and imprisoned in the Warsaw Ghetto. It was there that she faithfully wrote the first harrowing eye- witness account ever published of what was going on. Because her mother was an American citizen, she and her family avoided deportation and were able to start a new life in America. She published her diary in book form while the war was still going on.
