The booklet above is the Yiddish edition of A Year in Treblinka, by "Jankiel Wiernik", published in 1944 in New York.
Since the original is in Polish, its historical value is meagre anyway. But as Raul Hilberg, the renowned pundit of the Holocaustic saga, found out himself during his seminal work, the informational sources are not simply "raw material" for fashioning "a description of the destruction process" ( http://www.amazon.fr/Sources-Holocaust- ... 1566633796 ). So I guess you are allowed to see it as an object of collection.
At any rate, for those who wanted to see it, here it is. I can't help to translate excerpts though, but if somebody is able to do it on the Codoh forum, I eat my keyboard.
Homage to Catalin Haldan

I thought it was a kind of german dialect that had a roman alphabet!
Yiddish is closely related to German, but about 20-30% of the words have a non-germanic (mostly Hebrew) origin. It is written in the hebrew alphabet, but some of the hebrew characters are not used (except for words of hebrew origin), and there are some specific characters (derived from the aleph) in order to indicate typical germanic vowels. The genitive has been lost in Yiddish (it still exists in German).
