About this Item

Original Publisher s Cloth. 12mo. 19 cm. 171 pages. [4] leaves of plate. In Polish. Title translates to English as, "What I Read to the Dead. " Szengel was a poet and songwriter who wrote many of his poems while in the Warsaw Ghetto. When the Germans began deporting the ghetto's Jews to Extermination Camps, the tone of Szlengel's poetry changed. He began writing about the fear felt by the ghetto's inhabitants, now that death was knocking at their doors, and about the relationship between man and God in such a situation. His last poems deal with the deterioration of the ghetto during its final weeks of existence. Even at that point, Szlengel continued to share his poetry with the public---in small, secret get-togethers. Szlengel was killed in April 1943 during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Previous owner s inscription on title page. Corners bumped. Otherwise a nice, clean copy in Very Good Condition. (holo2-91-17) Holo7, cds. Bookseller Inventory # 30469
