Zaglada Zydostwa Polskiego: Album Zdjec - Extermination of Polish Jews: Album of Pictures
Centralna Zydowska Konisja Historyczna W Polsce, Lodz, 1945. Oblong quarto. [19], 104pp., [15]. Original paper wrappers. Considered as one of the single most important documentary photo books on the Holocaust ever published, this book became the defining collection of photographic images from the period. Illustrated with 252 b/w photographic reproductions documenting the debasement and destruction of European Jewry, with pictures of cities, ghettos and the camps. This multilingual photographic album was published in Poland a few months after the end of World War II when relatively little was known on the magnitude of the genocide perpetrated upon the European Jews. In addition to a short introduction, the 252 photographs contain shocking footage from the Jewish settlements at the onset of German occupation, the ghettos into which they were later crowded, and finally, photographs of the atrocities committed in the forced labor camps and the extermination camps. Another section of the book is dedicated to the Jewish partisan movements. The photographs were mostly taken as mementos by German soldiers, and are still as shocking today as they were in 1945. Text and captions in Polish, Russian, English, French, Yiddish and Hebrew. Wrappers are creased and cracked. Otherwise in good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
Bookseller: ERIC CHAIM KLINE, BOOKSELLER (ABAA ILAB) [Santa Monica, CA, U.S.A.]
