Each week in the Warsaw Ghetto, Rabbi Kalonymus Kalman Shapira (1889-1943), known as the Aish Kodesh, delivered Divrei Torah to his followers and fellow citizens. Despite the mounting horrors, Rabbi Shapira urged his followers to remain steadfast in their faith and drew lessons of strength from the weekly Torah portion. Realizing that he might not survive, Rabbi Shapira gave the copies of his sermons to the Jewish historical society Oneg Shabbat, who buried it underground.
