She writes, as would any 14 year old girl, anywhere, ever, of books, her friends, crushes and how her intimate feelings are changing, but set against a background of persecution, and unimaginable brutality that she witnessed first hand. For the young reader, there is a wealth of supplemental material, with background information on the Laskier family, the Holocaust, how Rutka’s notebook was rediscovered after so many years, how Rutka’s father, Yaakov, survived to establish a new life and family in Israel, the quest of Zahava, a daughter by Yaakov’s second marriage, to get to know the half-sister she never met.

I honestly found her waffling on falling in love with the boy Janek as a sign she had not lost her humanity. Rutka hide the notebook and told her non Jewish friend of its location, which is how the notebook survived after her death. A moving read on a young life cut short due to the Holocaust.

I can’t say I’ve eaver been so struck with the reality of the holocaust. She wrote at one point, “I’m turning into an animal waiting to die”.

While history books and conference papers have their place, of course, I feel like the memoirs of teens from this time period are an invaluable resource. No trivia or quizzes yet. This young diarist was an intelligent young lady with everything to live for but all the time knew what was going to happen to her.

Now, after 60 years, that notebook hs been recovered, opening a unique, moving window into everyday life of Polish Jews caught in the throes of Adolf Hitler’s Final Solution.

Rutka’s Notebook: A Voice from the Holocaust

These entries could have been taken straight from my own journal. The reader also shares in Rutka’s apprehension of the future, first having to move to the ghetto, set in the town’s bleak Kamionka district and later moving to Auschwitz, with all the accounts of its horrors she has heard. He went on to remarry and have a daughter, Zahava.
