Description Two Flags de Marian Apfelbaum:

The Warsaw ghetto uprising was planned and accomplished by two organisations, the ZOB (Zydowska Organizacja Bojowa -- Jewish Fighting Organization) and the ZZW (Zydowska Zwiazek Wojskowy -- Jewish Military Union). While the part of the ZOB is well known though multiple books and articles, the part of the ZZW has been largely ignored for political reasons. Using extensive primary source material from Polish, Jewish and German sources, much of it here translated into English for the first time, the role of the ZZW is reported and analysed, with special attention given to the fierce battle waged over the Polish and Jewish flags hoisted over the ghetto. Marian Apfelbaum spent the war in Warsaw, first within the ghetto, and then in the Aryan area, hidden by numerous Catholics. After the war, he came to Paris and became a physician and ultimately professor of nutrition. Until 1998, he was Director of Human Nutrition Studies at Xavier Bichat Faculty of Medicine. He has written numerous books in his field, including an encyclopedic dictionary of nutrition and a book on risks and fears in eating. He resides in Paris with his wife Laurence.
