Warsaw Diary

I can't begin to truly imagine how horrific it must have been to be incarcerated within the Warsaw ghetto and from The Guardian this week:

"We will probably never know who Debora was, why she decided to record her family's horrific treatment at the hands of the Nazis, and why her friend, the Holocaust survivor Lusia Schwarzwald Hornstein, did not reveal the existence of the charred diary for more than 50 years."

The recovered document begins on January 4 1943 with the Gestapo assuring Jews that there would be no more deportations from the ghetto and ends mid-1944.
