There were more and more people

“Sometimes I wonder how I could lead a normal life after all this” – confesses Barbara Marlow (born in 1931), the Survivor who participated in the Warsaw Uprising as a member of the scout movement. The third episode of ‘The Message’ series, entitled There were more and more and more people, is devoted to everyday life in the Warsaw Ghetto. The accounts from this period are presented by a Survivor Wacław Izaak Kornblum (born in 1926), author of the book ‘Memories. My Version’ and a Survivor Marian Kalwary (1930).

Created from material recorded during the implementation of the project of the Education Department of the WGM ‘The Home Army on the tragedy of Polish Jews’, which is part of the program of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage – ‘Independent’.

From the interviews recorded at that time, we chose parts concerning the uprising and functioning of the Warsaw Ghetto – from the moment of its creation to its tragic end, as well as statements about pre-war, Jewish-Polish Warsaw.

The message is the main thought contained in someone’s statement – each of us can find it in a different part of the presented memories.
