In telling his father’s story of his Holocaust experiences as a Polish Jew, stories of Tomaszów, Treblinka and Auschwitz, Tony Bernard has not only created a memoir and provided a deeper view of this bigger story, but he has also crafted a deeply affecting account of his quest to know and understand his father.

The Warsaw Orphan joins a growing collection of books about aspects of the Holocaust, this one the Nazi occupation of Poland. It is a story focused on families caught up in the cruelties and privations of the period – the Jews who were placed in the confines of the ghetto in Warsaw and the Catholic Poles living in relative comfort but still under great duress and hardship in the part of the city outside those walls.
