Documentation of one, if not the worst case of destruction of a major European city during World War II. Illustrated with haunting b/w photographs of the destruction in the city of Warsaw, in many cases juxtaposed with photographs after the completed rebuilding process. The text is a detailed account of the three phases of the destruction of the Polish capitol: 1. The destruction during the siege of Warsaw by the Germans in September 1939, 2. during the time of the German occupation and 3. during the Warsaw Insurrection in August and September 1944. The booklet was designed by the Polish artist Teresa Zarnowerowna who was honored with a retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Lodz in 2014. Zarnowerowna was one of the editors of the Polish constructivist avant-garde magazine BLOK from 1924-1926. Wrappers and interior with very light age toning. Wraps lightly rubbed.
