In a recent issue of the FORWARD, is a review of the book,
The clandestine history of the Kovno Jewish Ghetto Police.
The most important parts of the book describe eyewitness
accounts of the life of Jews in the Kovno ghetto >from 1942
until the end of 1943. The manuscript, buried in a metal box,
was found in 1964 during a construction project.

The book contained 249 pages of typed text in Yiddish. The
book was translated into English and edited by Samuel Schalkowsky.
Indiana University Press, 416 pages, $35.

This is a one time message allowed by the digests. However, its
historical value lies far beyond the commercial aspect of the book.
There is no doubt about the history's authenticity.
