Never again (not verified)
Mila 18, Leon Uris

Not an anarchist book, but a worthwhile fictionalized account of the Warsaw Ghetto and the many battles to survive. For someone, ANYONE, to survive. If only to let the world know, to make sure the torture and death did not go unnoticed, unremembered. And that the resistance was strong despite ideological differences. The personal stories, diaries and years of research make for a mostly gripping and enlightening read.

I just reread it for the third time last month and when I finished it I was left with a different sense of urgency and anger and sadness and horror than the previous two trips. Today as I stepped outside my geezer bubble for my monthly trip to town and a looksee at the world, as I view the world from afar via the internet, I was jolted by the increasing signs of authoritarianism and (increasingly coopted) resistance. But sadly, unsurprised.

And in a snap, my mind returned to Mila 18 and I recalled the most important lesson of the Warsaw Ghetto and so many others: too little too late.
