內容簡介


猶太少女Renia封存70年的日記,已被視為猶太大屠殺的經典之作,足可媲美《安妮的日記》,以《否認》一書聞名於世的猶太學者黛博拉.利普斯塔特為文寫序。

1942715日星期三

記得這一天,好好記住它,你將告訴未來的世代。自8點開始我們在猶太城區被掃射,我住在這,這個世界與我分離,而我也與世界分開。

Renia是個夢想成為詩人的少女,但她是個猶太人,1939那一年住在波蘭。當俄羅斯與德國侵略她的國家,Renia的世界化為碎片。被迫與母親分離,為了躲避炸彈夜襲,她逃至東南方普熱梅希爾城,目睹其他猶太家庭失蹤,見證猶太隔離區的設立。

但是伴隨戰爭恐怖的卻是人生的大美,她開始發現自己寫作的天分與初戀。納粹進軍家鄉時,她與初戀男孩Zygmunt第一次親吻,而Zygmunt也是Renia日記中令人心碎的最後一頁。

Renia的日記在封存70年之後的近年才被發現,已經被認為是猶太大屠殺的經典之作。具寫作技巧、文風清晰,讓人想起安妮.法蘭克的日記。這是一份傑出的遺囑,證明了戰爭的恐怖,還有即便在最黑暗的時刻依舊存在的生命。

Introduction by Deborah E. Lipstadt, author of Denial 


July 15, 1942, Wednesday
Remember this day; remember it well. You will tell generations to come. Since 8 o’clock today we have been shut away in the ghetto. I live here now. The world is separated from me and I’m separated from the world.

Renia is a young girl who dreams of becoming a poet. But Renia is Jewish, she lives in Poland and the year is 1939. When Russia and Germany invade her country, Renia's world shatters. Separated from her mother, her life takes on a new urgency as she flees Przemysl to escape night bombing raids, observes the disappearances of other Jewish families and, finally, witnesses the creation of the ghetto.

But alongside the terror of war, there is also great beauty, as she begins to find her voice as a writer and falls in love for the first time. She and the boy she falls in love with, Zygmunt, share their first kiss a few hours before the Nazis reach her hometown. And it is Zygmunt who writes the final, heartbreaking entry in Renia’s diary.

Recently rediscovered after seventy years, Renia’s Diary is already being described as a classic of Holocaust literature. Written with a clarity and skill that is reminiscent of Anne Frank, Renia's Diary also includes a prologue and epilogue by Renia's sister Elizabeth, as well as an introduction by Deborah E. Lipstadt, author of Denial. It is an extraordinary testament to both the horrors of war, and to the life that can exist even in the darkest times.
