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

"Today's operations by all units ended with the setting of huge fires which forced Jews to leave their bunkers and hiding places. All together 1690 were taken alive. The lives of none were spared. As on previous days, many were buried in the dynamited buildings or perished in the flames."

Report by the German commander, General
Stroop, on April 25, 1943.
