Summary
After more than seventy years in obscurity, the diary of a teenage girl during the Holocaust has been revealed for the first time. Rywkaђ́ةs Diary is at once an astonishing historical document and a moving tribute to the many ordinary people whose lives were forever altered by the Holocaust. At its heart, it is the diary of a girl named Rywka Lipszyc who detailed the brutal conditions that Jews in the Lodz ghetto, the second largest in Poland, endured under the Nazis: poverty, hunger and malnutrition, religious oppression, and, in Rywkaђ́ةs case, the death of her parents and siblings
