Girl with two landscapes: the wartime diary of Lena Jedwab, 1941-1945
Holmes & Meier, 2002 - 190 Seiten
A journal account of a sixteen-year-old girl who in June 1941 bade farewell to her family for what was to have been a summer-long vacation camp. Lena Jedwab left her home in Bialystok, Poland and arrived in Russia just as Germany invaded the Soviet Union. Lena was stranded in a Russian children's home while her family was murdered by the Nazis at the Treblinka concentration camp for the crime of having been born Jewish. In her diary, Lena wrote in Yiddish as she agonised over the unknown fate of her family and the uncertainties of her future. Expressed are her conflicted emotions over what the war had done to her youth and the gratitude felt for being alive, nourished and in school while so many others were displaced, starving, and dying. Not since 'The Diary of Anne Frank', has there been such a personalised account by an adolescent girl caught up in the turmoil and terror of World War 2. GIRL WITH TWO LANDSCAPES is an incredibly important and highly prized addition to Judaic Studies and Holocaust Studies collections.
