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.--New York Journal of Books

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.--Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews
