Emanuel Ringelblum (1900-44), a scholar, teacher and social worker, resided in Warsaw, Poland and, with his family, was confined to the Warsaw ghetto following the Nazi invasion of Poland. Devoted not only to his people but to the Yiddish language, he chronicled the fate of the Jews in the ghetto, particularly during the period of deportation (July-September 1942) as well as the first gassings at the death camp in Chelmno. This information was passed to the Polish Underground who forwarded it to the Polish Government-in-Exile in London and thus word of Nazi atrocities were brought to the outside world.
