Rutka’s Notebook: A Voice from the Holocaust

I found this book at a discount store and with my interest in the Holocaust I couldn’t pass it up. Some people compare this book to Anne Frank’s Diary.

No trivia or quizzes yet. Mar 25, Daniel L. This does not imply any lesser value from a testimonial point of view, this being a relevant document about the atrocities committed during the holocaust.

I could only take it in small doses. I found the diary itself rather disappointing; very laskieg of a 14 year old girl, concerned with friends, boys, etc. Against this backdrop of adolescent normalcy cjaderno the brutality of the Nazi regime and the horrific events she has to witness lakier such a young age. This diary only came to light after being hidden for 60 years and one must admire the research that went into finding people, or people who knew people, and authenticating the facts. Rutka witnessed unimaginable horrors that no human would wish to witness and though both girls perished in the Shoah, their lives were very different, and this is reflected in their writings.

This boo This book laskiee just an hour to read and does a nice job of putting her 50 pages of diary in historical context. A wonderful book that highlights all the things teenagers go through, friendship, loyalties, arguments, the beginnings of attraction to the opposite sex but the tragic circumstances under which this diary was written unfortunately were ckaderno experienced by the Jewish population in the ghetto.

Reading her diary we can live and touch the hard life Jewish gone through during Second World War with fear and no faith in the future. 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. There was the odd reference to what was taking place around her. Rut This is a diary from an approximate four month period from a teenage girl.

Editions of Rutka’s Notebook: A Voice from the Holocaust by Rutka Laskier

Rutka hide the notebook and told her non Jewish friend of its location, which is eel the notebook survived after laskisr death. It was so sad to read the daily thoughts of such a young girl who should have had a long life ahead of her, and all the while knowing that she would not make it to adulthood. But she left behind a notebook in which she recorded her thoughts, fears and dreams. I thought the quality of writing was good because even though she was only thirteen years old, she could still write well.

It’s now available in English. May 30, White House Public Library rated it liked it. It was incredibly hard to read, but I would absolutely recommend reading this book, with tissues on hand because it will make you sniff at the very least. Genuinely difficult to read.

I really liked this book because I felt like I was there and I felt sorry for whoever Rutka felt sorry for. The editors did a fantastic job, adding in pictures and historical context for the things that Rutka xe about. Zlata Filipovic’s diary, written much later during the brutal war in her native Sarajevo has also been hailed as the next Anne Frank.

I had to set it aside and read something else before coming back. This book is a diary of a 14 year old Polish girl who lived in a polish ghetto before eventually being sent off to a concentration camp where she was killed.

I know it hurt and scared her but fear apparently became so common her ability to process it was suppressed as a result of her own self preservation mechanisms.
