Product description

Review

"It is remarkable that Ghettostadt is the first English-language study of the Lodz
ghetto and Gordon Horwitz is the first scholar to draw together the mass of material
that has been published or come to light since the appearance of the ghetto chronicle
in 1984. Moreover, Horwitz synthesises the history of both the ghetto and the city.
Few local studies in this genre have dared to attempt anything so ambitious. [...] He
brilliantly juxtaposes what passed for life in the ghetto with the fun and games on the
`Aryan' side. His knack of being authoritative and heart-rending at the same time lifts
this book above mere history; it is a fitting memorial to a Lodz that is no more."
-- David Cesarani, Times Higher Education, 15/05/08

"Beautifully produced and well-illustrated with contemporary photographs, this is a powerful, though at times a heart-rendering account"
-- Irish Times, 13 September
