    • An incredibly moving and well written account of life in the Warsaw Ghetto. Reading this I realised that to call any survivor of that experience lucky is a complete misnomer. How can anyone feel lucky who has had to endure the murder of virtually all her friends and many members of her own family? Mary Berg survived the Warsaw Ghetto by virtue of the fact that her mother had American citizenship. She was fifteen when she entered the ghetto. This is a harrowing but brilliantly detailed account of [...]


    • Amazing! It's important to realize that this is not a novel, but the actual diary of a young girl. At first, I thought this would be pretty comparable to Ann Frank's diary, but it was completely different. Different circumstances, different country, different people. Mary was not in hiding, but living in the Warsaw ghetto. She gives a horrifying recollection of her time in the ghetto. At several parts in the book, I literally gasped out loud. I could not believe the unimaginable circumstances de [...]


    • The copy I obtained was published in 1945 and retrieved from storage from the dusty shelves of my local library.Despite international acclaim, for many years efforts to re-publish the book never came to fruition, in 2007 it was finally re-printed.This book was Mary Berg's attempt to open the eyes of America and the world to the brutality and barbaric horrific practices of the Nazi's upon Polish Jews.Hers was the first accounting of the reality of the Warsaw Ghetto. She and her family were in the [...]


    • It's easy to compare this book with the diary of Anne Frank - at least, that's the case before you read them both and find out how different they actually are. Sure they are both diaries written by young, jewish girls but that's as far as the similarities go. In my opinion Miriam saw far worse things than Anne did. And still Miriam was the one to survive. Her account of the life in the Warsaw Ghetto and the prison of Pawiak is far from bright. It is dark, horrorfilled and heart wretching. It's f [...]


    • Questo libro trasuda sangue. E' quello delle centinaia di migliaia di ebrei uccisi nello smantellamento del più grande ghetto d'Europa, il ghetto di Varsavia. Mary Berg, quindicenne allo scoppio della guerra, ne riesce a sopravvivere grazie a un trattamento privilegiato dovuto alla nazionalità americana della madre, ma vive comunque, sino alla liberazione e alla partenza per l'America, la miserabile vita quotidiana del ghetto e la descrive, con uno stile secco ma particolareggiato, attento ai [...]


    • Já li vários livros sobre o Holocausto. Já li vários diários escritos por quem viveu o Holocausto, mas nenhum é igual ao outro. Há sempre algo de novo nos livros e este não é excepção! Para começar, o país a que pertencem (isto é, onde nasceram e cresceram), as condições sócio-económicas da própria família, a educação e a faixa etária de quem escreve acabam por influenciar e distinguir os diários uns dos outros. De igual modo, o facto de se tratar de um homem ou de uma mu [...]


    • Como é possível é a única coisa que consigo dizer depois de ler este livro. Para dizer a verdade não só demorei mais algum tempo do que estava à espera como tive de deixar o livro "assentar" antes de fazer um comentário.Acho que por mais livros que leia acerca do assunto o Holocausto nunca deixará de me impressionar o que é bom, por um lado, mas por outro, minha nossa.Acho que não vale a pena me estar a alongar na história que todos conhecemos tão bem, basta apenas dizer que temos q [...]


    • WRB July 2008First pubilshed in 1944 !"A teenager's account of life in the Warsaw Ghetto 1940 to 1944"One reader says:Well written. Found it quite fascinating since she was originally from Lodz which is where my in-laws were from. They survived the Lodz getto, primarily because they were young and healthy and able to work. They suffered a great loss of their entire families and I felt compelled to read Mary Berg's account of the experience to pay homage to them. Mary was far better off than most [...]


    • Several things affected me: The chronicle of events as they were happening was heinous. I could NOT wrap myself around the day to day trauma and the residents' efforts to continue a normal life, a truly VALIANT effort to be normal and to continually embrace their faith. This book disappeared in the published sense, in favor of Anne Frank's "The Diary a Young Girl". Each showed the horrific side of the war, but this oneTHIS one made you look at the ugliness, cruelty and hope of it all and weep fo [...]


    • Well written. Found it quite fascinating since she was originally from Lodz which is where my in-laws were from. They survived the Lodz getto, primarily because they were young and healthy and able to work. They suffered a great loss of their entire families and I felt compelled to read Mary Berg's account of the experience to pay homage to them. Mary was far better off than most, including my relatives but she does state that and felt guilty because of it though there was little more that she c [...]


    • This is it - the diary that Anne Frank was not able to finish. A masterpiece by a young woman who made it out of the Warsaw Ghetto (owing to a loose familial connection to the US) but witnessed many of its horrors nonetheless and kept a diary to record them. The writing is stunning for a girl of this age. A true heart-breaker. Five stars.


    • A really extraordinary account of life in the Warsaw ghetto and then escape to America. Her survivor's guilt echoes in every word and it is difficult to read; and it seems she never found peace, but at least her words brought early attention to the plight at hand. I would definitely recommend giving this a read.


    • Not an easy book to read. But definitely a good one. It's a diary but very well written. Honest but not sentimental. Highly recommended.


    • The Diary of Mary Berg, a Polish survivor of American origins of the Warsaw Ghetto, has recently been in the news, a feature story in The New York Times. The journal contains entries from October 1939 to March 1944, offering first-hand details about the Nazi occupation of Poland, the establishment and destruction of the Warsaw Ghetto, where nearly 400,000 Polish Jews lost their lives. Published in 1945 by L. B. Fisher, the diary initially received a lot of media coverage but went out of print in [...]


    • El diario de Mary Berg quedo en el olvidó luego su publicación en 1950 —mismo año en que se publico Las habitaciones de atrás —llamado así antes el diario de Ana Frank—. El diario de Ana Frank tomo más popularidad y los horrores del Gueto de Varsovia fueron recordadas por el relato del Pianista del gueto Varsovia, Władysław Szpilman.Éste diario como todos los otros diarios que existieron durante la década de la segunda guerra mundial, cuentan los horrores que sufrieron los judío [...]


    • Narrative nonfiction from a precocious sixteen year old whose journal entries span over three years of being trapped in the infamous Warsaw Ghetto. Precise. Pointed. Poignant. Shattering. Share this with your friends who are so openminded about open borders, that their brains have fallen out. Here's some "co-exist" literature of the up close and personal variety. Naked torture. Doesn't get much more personal ( or up close) than that. A lesson in multiculturalism of the GIMMETHAT variety. Your cu [...]


    • The Diary of Mary Berg: Growing Up In the Warsaw Ghetto is a true accounting by Mariam Wattenberg. She was the first one to describe, in English, events about the establishment of the Warsaw Ghetto, what everyday life was like as the horrors of living in the Ghetto increased, and the deportations to the death camp at Treblinka. (view spoiler)[Her family was able to leave before the final deportations because her mother had an USA passport. After internment in France, the family came to New York [...]


    • Reading this book was a strange experience for me. Having heard references to the Warsaw Ghetto horror all my life, I was curious to read this diary/memoir, though Mary's experience was hardly the norm. Anne Frank was also in an "abnormal" situation as she was in hiding and only had rumours and second-hand knowledge of what went on in the outside world. While Mary "was there", in a real sense she too was at a certain remove from the experiences of "normal" ghetto residents, given the fact that h [...]


    • A história do gueto judeu de Varsóvia durante a 2ª Guerra Mundial é um acontecimento trágico e infelizmente pouco documentado.Foi isto que me atraiu a comprar este diario de Mary Berg, que consegue descrever de forma bastante exacta todas as fases do gueto de Varsóvia e a vida diária dos seus habitantes. A brutalidade alemã que se vai intensificando progressivamente ao longo dos relatos deste livro, chega até ao ponto em que as pessoas pensam que se vale a pena lutar e morrer em vez de [...]


    • Not as compelling and engaging as other WWII memoirs I've read, but it has its interesting points nonetheless. It is interesting to get a young adult's inside perspective of the Warsaw Ghetto. Mary had a slight advantage (if one can say there is any advantage in such an awful situation) of having an American mother. That kept their family from some of the hassles that other families encountered. But, the fear and daily shortage of food, privacy, and other basic needs were still prevalent.The ver [...]


    • The Diary of Mary Berg was a hard to read kind of book. It really tells you how difficult it was growing up in the Warsaw Ghetto. Mary was nineteen in the year of 1944, in the month of March when she walked off a prisoner-of-war exchange ship from Lisbon and onto a dock in New York. She was able to go to New York by her U.S. transport which was given to her by her mother. Mary also had her set of twelve diaries that described her life and experiences in the Warsaw Ghetto. Her diaries gave very e [...]


    • ()Apesar dessa segurança, Mary também sentiu na pele a fome e o medo. A tristeza da perda e da morte. Tendo passado por tivermos guetos de judeus e até mesmo por campos de concentração Mary era uma das "afortunadas" que eram colocadas de lado por serem de família inglesa, mas nem por isso deixou de ver o que acontecera em primeira fila, sempre com receio que, por alguma razão, o visto da mãe fosse ignorado e fossem mortas e levadas para os piores campos de concentração que existiam.É [...]


    • A diary written by a teenager who was trapped in the Warsaw ghetto. About the same age as Anne frank. However unlike most of the people in the Warsaw Ghetto, Mary Berg's mother was born in NYC and was therefore an American Citizen. Mary writes about happenings in the Warsaw ghetto as she sees them. Her family was better off than most in the ghetto. Shortly before the deportations began. Mary and her family were sent to a prison in the ghetto and later a hotel in France to be used for a prisoner [...]


    • This incredible testimony of life in the Warsaw Ghetto and the survival through the fury and rage of the second world war is definitely worth reading, because it brings yet another point of view of life in the Ghetto, the life of a previously affluent family who sees itself slowly deprived of all it was used to, but whose papers (with an American nationality) in the end manages to keep alive.An adventure told by a mature young girl who manages to tell all in the observers way, without too much s [...]


    • In the last fifty years I have read many books about the Holocaust and the Warsaw Ghetto. "The Diary of Mary Berg" brought back all the horrors of that tragedy. Mary Berg was just fifteen when her ordeal started, a sensitive and talented young girl from a well-to-do family in Lodz. Her mother, Lena, was a citizen of the United States, and that fact gave her whole family protection and privileges; they were spared the total disaster awaiting so many. Not long before the destruction of the Warsaw [...]


    • Mary Berg survived the Warsaw Ghetto and so did her diary - a firsthand witness of what life during those years was like for her from age 15-19. It was interesting that I recently read The Pianist by Szpilman, and as Berg's path crosses his every now and then in the ghetto, she mentions him in her diary. Not as engaging as The Diary of Ann Frank, but Ann didn't have to face the horrors that Mary did while writing her diary. So it's less of a personal diary and more like a record of history in th [...]


    • Teenager Mary Berg escaped the fate of many Polish Jews because her mother was an American citizen. Written for American readers, and published before the end of the war, it was intended to create a sense of urgency among Americans to act against the Nazi Holocaust. In her descriptions of daily life in Warsaw, and the deprivations of imprisonment under the Nazis, she vividly depicts the humanity of those who were lost. Naming her friends and cousins makes them real.


    • Sou apaixonada por tudo o que tenha a ver com a II Guerra Mundial, mas depois deste livro preciso de recuperar é preciso de um tempo sem nada sobre nazis, guetos, etc. Fiquei de tal maneira tocada pelas descrições macabras do que se passava que dei por mim a passar os meus dias de trabalho a pensar no quão sortuda sou apesar de achar que tenho uma vida chata, um mau trabalho etc. Duro, verdadeiro, realista.


    • It was really interesting but not as informative as I'd hoped. She had quite the cushioned life because her family was rich in the ghetto, and I didn't trust all her perspectives because she had family members in the Jewish Police when the average person said how corrupt they were. Still an interesting story.


    • Haunting, chilling, and startlingly realistic. I have read many books about the Holocaust, but none of them that mentioned in any depths, the ghettos. I wish there was a follow-up book so I could know how her life was after this book ended. What an amazingly strong woman she was, and those that experienced what they did I can't even imagine.
