Plan of the city of Warsaw with the ghetto borders marked
“It sometimes seemed to us that in spite of all the terror in Warsaw, there was some normal life on the other side. For people were walking the streets, enjoying themselves, the merry-go-round was working. (…) We felt forgotten, embittered that the world didn’t see what was going on with us. Not only the people on the other side of the wall, but the entire world. We knew that the free world was aware of what had been happening, but nobody uttered a word, none of the great governments dared to threaten Germany with retaliatory measures; even the greatest moral authorities of the free world remained silent”.
