This report contains the research on the effects of starvation on children and adults that was conducted by several Jewish physicians employed in the Berson and Bauman Jewish Children's Hospital on Śliska Street in Warsaw, a hospital located in the small ghetto between 1940 and 1942. It takes the form of a series of articles by individual doctors who conducted their research independently. The report, which includes photographs and testimonies, was smuggled out of the ghetto in 1942 or 1943. All of the participating physicians, with the exception of the editor Emil Apfelbaum, perished during the war. Dr Apfelbaum died while the book was in press in 1946.
