Samenvatting

Sinnreich’s 'The Atrocity of Hunger: Starvation in the Warsaw, Łódź, and Kraków Ghettos during World War II' meticulously unveils the multifaceted impact of hunger amid the Holocaust. Beyond its role in physically decimating populations, framing hunger as an atrocity acknowledges agency in the causation of hunger and highlights its transformative effects on families, communities, and individuals. Sinnreich’s book is thoroughly researched and skillfully constructed, effectively achieving her aim to narrate the stories of Jews navigating the challenges of surviving the genocidal famine conditions imposed by Nazi ghettoization. Holocaust scholars, famine researchers, and students exploring everyday life during this period will find Sinnreich’s The Atrocity of Hunger to be a valuable resource for deepening our comprehension of Jewish experiences during the Holocaust, particularly in relation to the profound impact of hunger.
