In 1940 as Nazi troops rolled across Europe, thousands of Jewish families were forced from their homes and imprisoned in isolated ghettos as part of a program of destruction we now know as the Holocaust.

In the Lodz Ghetto in Poland, one heroic young man refused to surrender to the suffering around him. At great risk to himself, Mendel Grossman secretly took thousands of heartrending photographs that bore witness to the fear, the hardship, and the struggle for survival woven through the daily lives of the people unjustly imprisoned with him. Someday, he hoped, the world would learn the truth.

This book is his legacy.
