A profound record of first-person accounts in diaries and memoirs uncovered in the years since the Holocaust. Remarkable insights into the struggle for life as both young and old writers describe day-to-day life coping in the ghettos, imprisoned in the death camps, hiding on the run, and fighting for their lives.
