Thursday, September 21—My Go-To Place invites you to join Illinois Holocaust Museum for The Girl in the Diary: Searching for Rywka from the Lodz Ghetto. In 1945, a diary was discovered in the liberated Auschwitz-Birkenau Camp. It was written by a 14-year-old Jewish girl named Rywka Lipszyc and documented her life in the Łódz Ghetto. Selected excerpts of the diary are supplemented by expert commentary from historians, doctors, psychologists, and rabbis. The Girl in the Diary explores the story of a young girl’s fight for survival and is a tribute to the life of a child who will not be forgotten.
