520    "The long-hidden diary of a young Polish woman's last days
       during the Holocaust, translated for the first time into 
       English, with a foreword from American Holocaust historian
       Deborah Lipstadt. Renia Spiegel was a young girl from an 
       upper-middle class Jewish family living on an estate in 
       Stawki, Poland, near what was at that time the border with
       Romania. In the summer of 1939, Renia and her sister 
       Elizabeth (née Ariana) were visiting their grandparents in
       Przemysl, right before the Germans invaded Poland. Like 
       Anne Frank, Renia recorded her days in her beloved diary. 
       She also filled it with beautiful original poetry. Her 
       diary records how she grew up, fell in love, and was 
       rounded up by the invading Nazis and forced to move to the
       ghetto in Przemsyl with all the other Jews. By luck, 
       Renia's boyfriend Zygmund was able to find a tenement for 
       Renia to hide in with his parents and took her out of the 
       ghetto. This is all described in the Diary, as well as the
       tragedies that befell her family and her ultimate fate in 
       1942, as written in by Zygmund on the Diary's final page. 
       Renia's Diary is a significant historical and 
       psychological document. The raw, yet beautiful account 
       depicts Renia's angst over the horrors going on around 
       her. It has been translated from the original Polish, with
       notes included by her surviving sister, Elizabeth Bellak"-
