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

"An uncounted number of Jews were burnt to death or died in the dynamited bunkers. One could observe that the Jews, in spite of the danger of the fires, preferred to retreat into the flames rather than to be captured by us. Only when surrounded by flames on all sides, some of them, in flames, threw themselves from the balconies and the windows onto the street below."

Report by the German commander, General Stroop.
