Diaries reveal some of the most intimate, heart-wrenching accounts of the Holocaust. They record in real time the feelings of loss, fear, and, sometimes, hope of those facing extraordinary peril. Hans Vogel (1926-1943) kept a diary journaling his family's flight from occupied Europe and eventual immigration to the United States. Explore some of the pages from his diary.
