Warsaw: Life and Death in the Ghetto which the Germans established there during WWII

"Everyone who joined in spoke of hunger. At that time the ghetto had not long been cut off so there were reserves here and there, but at prices which were prohibitive to all but a few people living there. Those who had nothing to sell or exchange such as jewelry, household items. fur coats or something of value, had quite simply to starve, some sooner, some later."
