From Library Journal:

Gelman was a teenager and Kubar a recent university graduate when the Germans occupied Poland and began the extermination of Jews. Both survived, but lost their entire families. Both now live in the United States and contribute their very different memoirs to the growing Holocaust literature. Their stories are alike in their accounts of German atrocities and in attributing much of the blame to those around them who acquiesced in the German persecution. Gelman did not "go gentle"; he joined the Russian-directed partisan resistance and engaged in guerrilla warfare, which he reports with gusto. Kubar escaped to the "Aryan" section of Warsaw and passed as a non-Jew, though not without many narrow escapes. Her more reflective narrative is poignant in its account of her struggle to set ethical standards in a morally insane world. Both are worthy additions to Holocaust collections and will interest general readers. For more on the Holocaust in Poland, see Stefan Korbonski's The Jews and the Poles in World War II and Out of the Inferno, both reviewed in this issue, p. 93.

From Publishers Weekly:

Forty years after the Holocaust reached his hometown of Kurenits in Poland, near the Soviet border, the author writes about his experience in the resistance movement. Without aid of a diary, which, he notes, may account for minor inaccuracies or omissions, Gelman describes his escape as a teenager into the forest where eventually he met up with the partisans, and joined the organized force that attacked German outposts. Although concentrating on those who fought back, he also examines the psychological warfare that silenced other Jews and gave the appearance of acquiescence in their own destruction. The memoir is a contribution to the literature of the Holocaust, but, unfortunately, with its one-note prose and plodding unselectivity, it is expressive of the author's fear of being "inadequate in conveying to the reader the depths of terror and despair we experienced under the Germans."
