Series: Diaries

Explore a series of articles about diaries and journals kept during the Holocaust. Each diary reflects a fragment of its author's life. These records bear witness to some of the most heart-breaking experiences of the Holocaust. They also document the fear, loss, trauma, and sometimes even the hope felt by human beings facing extreme peril.
