Three years before she was executed by Nazi soldiers in a Jewish ghetto in Poland, 14 year-old Renia Spiegel began to keep a secret diary.

“I’m looking for someone, to whom I could tell my worries and joys of everyday life,” she wrote on 31 January 1939. “From today on, we start a very hearty friendship. Who knows how long it will last?”

Over the next 700 pages, Renia records not only her teenage preoccupations, such as trivial arguments with her sister Ariana and her first kiss, but also the terrors of the German occupation and the Holocaust.
