Nazi Rule in Poland (1943)


First British Edition of Nazi Rule in Poland, 1943,
with a Folding Map and Seven Black-and-White Photographic Plates

Segal, Simon. Nazi Rule in Poland. London: Robert Hale, 1943.

Octavo. Hardcover. 1st Edition.

First British edition of this harrowing look at the Jewish situation in Poland as of 1942, with folding map and seven photographic plates depicting discriminatory signage toward Jewish and non-Jewish Poles, examples of underground publications by both groups, and two early images of the Warsaw Ghetto. Compiled under the auspices of the American Jewish Committee, this book was published in an attempt to shed light on the suffering of the Jews in Poland. Of particular interest are sections on legal discrimination, the creation of the ghettos, resistance activities in Poland, and evidence that Poland was being used as a testing ground for further European conquest (including the elimination of Europe's Jews). First published in America in 1942, but that edition is nearly unobtainable.  Book near-fine, with slightest rubbing to extremities and faint white stain to spine. Dust jacket with only a few tiny spots of soiling, light rubbing to extremities, and toning to spine. A near-fine copy.
