Anne Frank was not alone: Holocaust diary of 14-year-old Rywka Lipszyc finds the light

What seems like a divine series of events has culminated in the publication of the Holocaust diary of a 14 year old girl.

Here’s what we know:

-When Rywka Lipszyc began her diary, she had lived in the Lodz ghetto for more than three years and had already lost both of her parents.

-her diary cover six months in the Lodz ghetto starting in 1943.

-Zinaida Berezovskaya, A Soviet Red Army doctor found the diary beside a crematorium at Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1945.

- Berezovskaya kept the diary hidden in a closet in her home in Omsk (in southwestern Siberia) until her death in 1983.

-Her son kept it another 12 years until his death in Moscow in 1995.

-His daughter “found the diary wrapped with an explanatory cover note and an accompanying Russian newspaper article, with a photo from February 1945 showing the exact spot where the diary was found,” and took it back to San Francisco where she had immigrated to.

-She then wrote to the S.F.-based Holocaust Center of Northern California

-then the pros went to work. The diary “was exhaustively researched, authenticated and annotated. It took a team of historians, archivists and translators years to finalize the newly published book.”
