The Jews of Kraków and its Surrounding Towns


(Gusta Dawidsohn Draenger)

JUSTYNA'S DIARY is a translation of an important diary about the author's experiences as a resistance leader and fighter in the Kraków Ghetto Jewish Combat Organization. This work was written on bits of toilet paper while Justyna awaited execution in the Kraków prison. The book documents and serves as an inspiration of the struggle to survive and resist annihilation.

A list of people mentioned in the diary is excerpted from the notes to assist Kraków genealogical researchers in their Holocaust Era research.
