Irving Howe

Yale University Press

This chapter presents Irving Howe's 1993 review of A Surplus of Memory, a book containing the memoirs of Yitzhak Zuckerman. Zuckerman, who used the pseudonym “Antek” in the underground, was a leader of the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto who launched a rebellion in 1943 to defy the Nazis' horror machine that had set out to exterminate them. Zuckerman's memoirs reveal what it meant to live and to die in the totalitarian age. A Surplus of Memory also details Zuckerman's efforts to help place survivors of the uprising in safe places.
