 Rutka Laskier was 14 and she knew she was going to die. Likely, contacts from the underground told her family of the death camps. She wrote in a diary. She sees an old man beaten to death. A soldier bludgeoning a child. She does not believe there is a God. "if only I could say, it's over, you die only once...but I can't, despite all these atrocties I want to live, and wait for the following day. That means, waiting for Auschwitz or labor camp." She tells a friend where she is hiding the diary and asks her to find it when the war is over. Rutka then leaves for a camp and is killed. The friend, two years later, finds the diary, hidden under a house's floorboards. The impulse to live and to be remembered and to bear witness survived. The book is short, has excerpts from the diary and photos. It deserves to be read.
