The commander Anielewicz writes in a letter on the fourth day of fighting to his deputy: "My life's dream has come true. The self-defense of the Jews in the ghetto has become a fact..." (from the book). A rare publication issued on the second anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising documenting the various stages of the uprising through dozens of important historical documents dealing with the uprising two years after it occurred, and published still during the war. Among them: Articles published in the Polish press about the second anniversary of the uprising revealing details previously unknown about various events during the uprising, articles written in the Polish "People's Voice" in April 1945 dealing with the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, documentation titled "How the Ghetto Fought from the Memoirs of a Jewish Rebel" documenting the bloody battles fought by the Jews against the Germans during the uprising, a letter from a commander in Warsaw to his deputy ("What we experienced cannot be described in words, what happened exceeded our wildest dreams, the Germans fled from the ghetto twice..."), the reaction of the Polish nation in the face of waves of anti-Semitism that swept Europe even before the war, documentation of the heroism of the fighters during the uprising and documentation of heroic deeds of defiance against the Nazis, a declaration by the temporary Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland on the second anniversary of the uprising of Jewish Poland linking the uprising in the ghetto with the struggle of the Polish nation for liberation from Nazi rule - and the awarding of honors to the heroes of the uprising, and many more.
On the last page under the title "Polish Jews" a historic declaration linking the fate of Poland with the Jews, published even before the end of the war: "This must be carved in Polish memory like stone: our joint home was destroyed, and the blood of our brothers was shed, we are connected by the wall of execution, we are connected in Dachau, Auschwitz... Together the skies will shine upon ruined Warsaw when we finish our bloody work in victory...".
