With a Yellow Star and a Red Cross

A Doctor in the Lodz Ghetto

Mostowicz, Arnold

Described by the book's Polish publisher as a literary take on the author's experience in the Lodz ghetto and the Nazi concentration camps. Arnold Mostowicz, a Polish Jew was a doctor in the Lodz ghetto and intermittently in the camps. He was a witness to and participant in situations that have received little attention. The book contains a unique account of a worker demonstration in 1940, and a description of the Gypsy camp that the Nazis had created on the edge of the Lodz ghetto. It also gives an analysis of how the antagonism between the Lodz Jews and the German and Czech Jews, deported to the ghetto, played itself out in everyday life.
