Short biography
Simcha Guterman was a Polish Jew who participated in and died in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of World War II. He kept a journal knowing that he was documenting his own fate as well as that of his people. It was written in Yiddish on scraps of paper, which he stuffed into bottles and hid in different places. One of the bottles was discovered after the war. His writing was published and translated into several different languages. An English-language version is called Leaves From Fire.
