First edition of this important account of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising from one of its few leaders to survive. Wdowinski was a founder of Betar and a leader of the Irgun Zva'i Leumi during the Ghetto revolt, an experience recounted here along with the author's experience both in pre-war Poland as a politician/activist (he was an active member of the Warsaw underground and was a member of the advisory body of the Zydowskie Towarzystwo Opieki Spolecznej/Jewish Mutual Aid Society) and in the labor and concentration camps after the defeat of the uprising. Wdowinski later emmigrated to the US and taught psychology at the New School in New Yory City. In 1961 testified at the trial of Adolf Eichmann. He died in 1970. Widely considered one of the most authoritative account of the Warsaw revolt, it is decidedly scarce signed.
