User Summary: You must travel back to the Warsaw ghetto during World War II and discover the location of a milk can containing historical documents gathered by Emanuel Ringelblum in defiance of the Nazis.
Demian's Thoughts:

This is an excellent entry in the series. The subject matter is dealt with effectively and the gameplay is somewhat challenging without being frustrating; wrong choices sometimes lead to interesting situations.

Dtar's Thoughts:

Very important subject matter and a great learning tool, by an author who spent years studying the holocaust. A vivid picture is painted of what life was like in and around the Warsaw ghetto and other times and places in the European theater of WWII, also the perspectives of people in places like England who would have only seen false propaganda about the Warsaw ghetto.

My only complaint about the book is the way that you can go in circles, repeatedly meeting the same people for the first time. Depending on your laws of time travel, maybe that works for you.
