This chapter begins by studying paramedic Fanny Sołomian's book The Ghetto and the Stars which was published in 1995. Her recollections belong among the most important books about the Shoah. She shows how women were treated as sexual property, individual and communal, which added another duty for the battalion ‘doctor’, namely, innumerable abortions. She also describes the courts martial and executions without trial. The chapter then looks at The Memoir of Maria Koper. The manuscript, found and edited by Henryk Grynberg, was written by a young Polish Jew who had hidden in the countryside near Rawa Mazowiecka for two years. The chapter also considers Nathan Gross's series of short essays, Poets and the Shoah, which provides a reminder of the poets and poems that testify to the Shoah.

Keywords:   Fanny Sołomian, Shoah, Jewish women, courts martial, Henryk Grynberg, Polish Jews, Maria Koper, Nathan Gross, Jewish poets, Jewish poems
