Rabbi Oshry?s eye-witness account of the Lithuanian religious community?s courageous struggle to survive in the Kovno Ghetto. Even in famine, kashruth was kept. Even under the threat of death, Torah learning continued. Even as Nazis waied by the door, baby boys were circumcised. An astonishing account and unlike anything else that?s been written about Lithuania! Included also is a short town-by-town history of Jewish Lithuania and a record of its destruction. Illustrated with 171 photographs and complete with index, glossary and maps. Translated from Yiddish by Y. Leiman.
