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. Using postcards and precious family photographs, Helene Reik recorded her thoughts and recollections while imprisoned in Theresienstadt.
