About this Event
The United Nations General Assembly has designated January 27th as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, commemorating the tragedy of the Holocaust which resulted in the deaths of six million Jews and eleven million others. To mark the occasion, NAC member Elizabeth Bellak, with her daughter Alexandra, presents the journal of her sister, Renia Spiegel, who was a Jewish teenager in southeastern Poland when she began writing her diary, months before the advent of World War II.
By the time she was executed by Nazi soldiers, Spiegel had chronicled life under a totalitarian regime. Her journal, hidden in a safe deposit box in New York City for decades, has been described as a counterpart to Anne Frank’s diary, a valuable historical document and a poignant coming-of-age story.
