    Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. With 4 page summaries in English & French & Yiddish & German + 51 black and white + 8 color plates on glossy paper. 120 pages. Dozens of illustrations, some in color, of Beck's art works. Translation of the inscription in Polish on bottom margin of title page: "To the esteemed Mr. Józef Lichtman with expression of friendship and respect. Paris 1/1/1983." Henryk Beck, a doctor and artist, one of the Robinson Crusoes of Warsaw, fought in the Warsaw Uprising and, when the unconditional capitulation was signed, went into hiding in cellars of the ruins of Warsaw. Although the living conditions were extremely appalling, he, along with 35 other people, spent there 110 days. This common life in the cellars, incessantly strained, continually filled with danger, in suffocating air, heat and darkness, was a veritable torture. Yet Professor Beck managed to paint and draw there, and created a series of 46 drawings on papers of all possible kinds, using a drawing-pen and water-colours. These documentary drawings, done in conditions defying all standards of humanity, created by a physician and artist, were titled 'The Bunker of 1944'. Robinson Crusoes of Warsaw were people who, after the end of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising and the subsequent planned destruction of Warsaw by Nazi Germany, decided to stay and hide in the ruins of the German-occupied city. The most famous of the "Robinsons" was the composer Wladyslaw Szpilman, whose story was the subject of the 2002 film The Pianist. Inscribed by Author(s).
