The German edition has received great attention in the large national German newspapers, such as the FAZ, the Süddeutschen Zeitung, the Frankfurter Rundschau and the Zeit was acknowledged very positively throughout. Numerous articles and reviews were published in the press as well as in scientific journals.
There are also a number of other projects about the Lodz/Litzmannstadt Ghetto which have prepared, accompanied or continued the editing process of the printed edition of the Ghetto Chronicle:
In 2002, within a German-Polish project, the Arbeitsstelle Holocaustliteratur published the reports of one of the authors of the Chronicle, Dr. Oskar Singer, entitled “Im Eilschritt durch den Getto-Tag”. The publication was funded by the Ernst-Ludwig Chambré-Stiftung zu Lich and the RAG Essen.
On occasion of the 60th anniversary of the liquidation of the Lodz/Litzmannstadt Ghetto in 2004 a volume entitled “Letzte Tage. Die Lodzer Getto-Chronik Juni/Juli 1944” – a pre-release of the last two month of the Chronicle – was published by Wallstein Verlag. The publication was made possible thanks to funds provided by the Ernst-Ludwig Chambré-Stiftung and the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Within his dissertation, Sascha Feuchert extensively studied the works of Oskar Rosenfeld and Oskar Singer, two of the central authors of the Ghetto Chronicle, in particular from 1942 onwards. His book is entitled “Oskar Rosenfeld und Oskar Singer – zwei Autoren des Lodzer Gettos” and was published by Peter Lang Verlag in 2004.
Since last year, parts of the Chronicles can also be accessed online. The online access was made possible thanks to a project of the Exzellenzinitiative Hessen (LOEWE) in the frame of which the Arbeitsstelle Holocaustliteratur cooperated with the Herder Institute in Marburg, the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen (University of Applied Sciences/ THM) and the Zentrum für Medien und Interaktivität (Center for Media and Interactivity/ ZMI) of the Justus-Liebig-University.
The Hessische Rundfunk, the man radio station in Hesse, carried out a unique experiment: Until August 2012, for a period of one year, a daily reading of the Chronicle’ entries of the last twelve months of the ghetto was broadcasted. Every day at the same time (at 12:55 am) a slightly abridged entry was read out on the radio station HR2.
