“Renia’s Diary”: A Holocaust Journal Discussion

November 4 , 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

As we prepare to mark the 76th anniversary of Kristallnacht, join us for a discussion about Renia’s Diary, the long-hidden journal of a young Polish woman’s life during the Holocaust. Through this extraordinary historical document, we witness the hopes, dreams, and last days of Renia Spiegel as her world plunges into war and she is forced into the Przemsyl ghetto with the rest of the Jewish community. We will be joined by Elizabeth Bellak, Renia’s sister, and Elizabeth’s daughter, Alexandra Bellak, who will share how they worked together to preserve and share Renia’s story with the world for the first time.

Copies of Renia’s Diary will be available for purchase after the Q&A.

$10 members/$15 public.
