Recently I watched a movie named 'The Pianist' (directed by Roman Polanski), which is also a true story about a Pianist at a radio station in the WW-II era. I was heart smitten to see the struggle and survival of the Jewish musician. Though this book had long been in my to-read list, but watching this movie gave me a push to start it immediately.
One can hardly imagine a teenage girl, stuffed with 7 other inmates in a small attic, in the middle of burglaries, police, hunger, misery, betrayal, death, to have so much stability in her mind as to write down a diary page each day. The hardest part of this true story is that it is absolutely true.
Nothing can best define a WW story, or a holocaust misery, than a journal keeping of a victim himself. I truly wish that some anti-Jews had read this book.
