Synopsis: Hotel owner Heinrich Jàst was a sergeant in the German army, stationed near Warsaw, who became curious about the corpses he had seen lying along the ghetto walls. So on his birthday he made use of his free time and went into the ghetto with his camera. He had no idea what was awaiting him there. The amateur photographer shot several rolls of film in September 1941 and kept them for decades without showing them to anyone. In 1982, he gave the photographs to Stern magazine reporter Gnther Schwarberg. The Jerusalem Documentation Center Yad Vashem pronounced them a ''unique find,'' and they certainly are--Jàst's pictures belong to the scant number of existing photographs of the Warsaw ghetto, and are a critically important document of its history. Gnther Schwarberg: In the Ghetto of Warsaw documents these incomparable photographs along with Jàst's own recollections as recounted to Gnter Schwarberg.

From Library Journal: Among the many books released on the Holocaust, the complete set of J st's photographs of the Warsaw Ghetto is a valuable resource for scholars. J st, a hotel owner and sergeant in the Wehrmacht, took photographs of the Warsaw Ghetto in late 1941, which he shared with the journalist Schwarberg in 1982. Originally exhibited at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, these photographs are now available, along with J st's recollections, to a wide audience (J st died in 1983). Although the graphic nature of the pictures is disturbing they show, for instance, starving children dying in the streets they provide a record of the Warsaw Ghetto separate from official Nazi propaganda and as such are extremely valuable. Recommended for all libraries. Frederic Krome, Jacob Rader Marcus Ctr. of the American Jewish Archives, Cincinnati
