Taking as its point of departure Omer Bartov's acclaimed Anatomy of a Genocide, this volume brings together previously unknown accounts by three individuals from Buczacz, These rare narratives give personal glimpses into daily life in unsettled times: a Polish veteran of World War I, a Ukrainian witness to both Soviet and German rule, and a Jewish member of the Polish resistance. Together, they offer a prismatic perspective on a world remote from our own that nonetheless helps us to understand how people not unlike ourselves responded to mass violence and destruction.
