First-Person Narrative of Life As a Young Jew During World War II

A journal written in Poland during World War II describes the details of the life of a Jewish girl, Renia Spiegel, from age 15 to 18, as the war unfolded. Nearly 700 pages, Spiegel’s journal, which spans the years 1939 to the summer of 1942, presents a powerful insight into the life of a young woman whose life was tragically cut short shy of her eighteenth birthday. Spiegel’s journal—with English translated excerpts published in Smithsonian Online—offers a contrast to the writing of Anne Frank who recounts the war and her final days hiding in an attic.
