Book Description Poland Fights, NY, 1944. Soft Cover. Condition: Very Good Minus. John Groth (illustrator). First Edition. cardstock covers, staple-bound., some creasing, soiling. no chips or foxing or writing. an intact copy.; 42pp., illustrated throughout.; printed in nyc in 1944, this disturbing account of the plight of polish political prisoners in auschwitz, was intended to inform and raise support. part of its value consists in showing that there was fairly detailed and accurate information available on what was taking place in poland, in auschwitz, during the war, and that that information was reaching the united states. there was a tendency in leftist organisations to play down the plight of jews as jews during the nazi occupation and perhaps this partly accounts for the low prominence assigned in this document to mass murder of europe's jews. this unusual document deserves far more of an explication than room permits here.
