Assimilated Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto is an excellent analysis of assimilated groups of Polish Jews who were forced to live together in the Warsaw ghetto from 1940 1943 with all other types of Jews.--Charles S. Weinblatt "New York Journal of Books ""
"A very important study of the complex nature of those groups of persons who were forced to live (and die) in the Warsaw Ghetto and the history of the fate of European Jews. Clear, readable, original and sound, highly recommended."--Peter Dembowski, University of Chicago "SirReadaLot.org "
Person, in this informative, readable, and original work, adds to our understanding of the complexity of the social reality of Warsaw ghetto life and death.--Michael N. Dobkowski "Jewish Book World "
Prewar Poland witnessed the secularization of thousands, including Jews who assimilated,
intermarried, or converted to Christianity, as well as those of Jewish descent. In 1940 all were
lumped together under Nazi racial laws and forced into the Warsaw Ghetto. Based on diaries,
memoirs, and interviews, the author describes the tragedy of those adrift in two worlds.--Hallie Cantor, Yeshiva University, New York, NY "Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews "

The book examines the history of Jewish assimilation and acculturation and then goes on to look at individual experience. Drawing on historical and official documents, newspapers and personal testimony such as diaries and memoirs, this is a detailed and thoroughly researched study, which is informative, well-documented and above all deeply moving.
