    1. "You know, when I'm very upset I admire life. Then I wonder. Why at the same time are some people crying, while others are laughing or suffering? At the same time some are being born, others die or get sick. Those who are born grow up. They mature in order to live and suffer. And yet all of them want to live, desperately want to live. A living person always has hope (sometimes unconsciously). Although life is difficult, it is also beautiful. Life has its strange charm" (79). This was a beautiful [...]


    2. Perhaps a better title would have been: Where is Rywka? It is certainly the question I was left with after reading this book.The diary of Rywka Lipszyc has been verified as one of the many manuscripts hidden or buried by some of the unfortunate individuals on the Sonderkommando in Auschwitz. Those brave men hid detailed manuscripts, diaries and other written accounts of concentration camp victims in an attempt to retain some kind of evidence. Evidence of the atrocities committed by the Nazis and [...]


    3. Rywka Lipszyc was a 14-year old girl, who had lost both of her parents and her two younger siblings, and whose diary recorded a period of history in the Lodz ghetto. From February 1940 to August 1944, a period of 4 1/2 years, the Jewish population there fell from about 175,000 to 1,500 under the Nazi regime. About 1/2 of the book is essays about the time or interpretation of Rywka's words. Of the essays, I liked the ones by her aunts best. It was hard to connect with her, as she oscillated betwe [...]


    4. “Senza contorni, senza fine, e forse senza forma sta succedendo qualcosa dentro di me, ma non capisco cosa.”Rywka Lipszyc (si legge “Rifka Lipsciz”) cominciò a scrivere l’unico volume superstite dei suoi diari nel ghetto di Łódź, poco dopo aver compiuto 14 anni. Nel giro di 6 mesi, dall’ottobre del 1943 all’aprile del 1944, riempì più di cento pagine, poi all’improvviso smise. Un anno dopo, una dottoressa sovietica entrata ad Auschwitz-Birkenau, insieme all’Armata Rossa, [...]


    5. I felt very connected to Rywka throughout this story in a strange way for me. The writing made me feel I was traveling her journey with her. I felt her sadness, her excitement for better weather and the encouragement that can bring. My sadness for her is the overwhelming feeling of hunger which is so hard to overcome. I understand that everyone that possibly could lookFor her after liberation did, I wish we could have found that she lived a happy long life. Well written, thank you


    6. Tengo que escribir mucho sobre este libro. Además, seré sincera, deseo compartirlo.Haber, quiero escribir mucho de este libro, sí, pero quizás lo correcto sería decir que me gustaría expresar lo mucho que me ha calado. Así pues, empezaré. Os explico. Como con Ana Frank, nos encontramos con un documento histórico, un diario, que nos hace participes de la vida de Rywca y de todo lo que envolvía a la vida de la joven. Para que nos pongamos en contexto (y aquí no desvelo nada que no se di [...]


    7. Otro diario real sobre una víctima del holocausto, en este caso una niña polaca pero, aunque es interesante, he leído testimonios mejores. Es que está trabajosamente escrito, y esto porque la pobre niñita se pasa casi todo el tiempo hablando de sus creencias religiosas y ninguneándose a sí misma por no ser, según ella, lo suficientemente fuerte cuando en verdad le pasan unas cosas horribles. Aún peor: toma todas esas cosas horribles como una prueba de fe, aunque yo creo que en gran part [...]


    8. Original review can be found at kristineandterri/2I am fascinated with anything related to the Holocaust and World War II. I have read hundreds of books both fiction and non fiction and I've watched numerous documentaries. It is a part of history that I think is important to be remembered, especially now that there are very few survivors left to speak about it.As I was reading Rywka's Diary the same thought kept popping into my head. This was written in the Lodz Ghetto and Rywka was living it. I [...]


    9. My review for the San Francisco Book Review:In 1945, a Russian doctor discovered a diary in the ruins of the cremation ovens in the Auschwitz death camp. She passed it down through her family, and it did not come to light for more than 65 years. It was the diary of a young Jewish girl who survived the ghetto at Lodz, Poland and death camps even while her parents, brother, and two sisters were all lost to the holocaust. Her diary reveals her memories of her parents’ deaths, her brother and one [...]


    10. I am absolutely flabbergasted, dismayed, and perturbed how reading folks rate this book. This is not the work of fiction. This is a diary written at the time of the indescribable misery and privation, at the time of suppression, humiliation and agony. This is the diary written by a young girl, who had never been properly trained how to write coherently and, what is more, she wrote it in Polish, which was still one of the two or even three languages she was exposed to. The diary was written after [...]


    11. Perché leggere questo diario?a)Perché è un documento storico straordinario essendo un diario scritto a mano in polacco da una quattordicenne ebrea ortodossa che visse nel più longevo ghetto d'Europa, quello di Lodz.b)Perché è una testimonianza commovente e vera di quella che è stata la vita di un'adolescente orfana in un ghetto dall'ottobre 1943 ad aprile 1944.c)Perché è una prospettiva sulla vita del ghetto filtrata dalla fede, quella stessa tenace fede che aiuterà Rywka a sopravviver [...]


    12. Es difícil colocar una puntuación a una historia real. También es cierto que esperaba un poco más, pero hay que tener en cuenta que quizás ella nunca pensó que su diario se publicaría, por lo que ahí encontramos sentimientos y pensamientos muy suyos, sin más explicación que la necesidad de exteriorizarlo y aferrarse a ellos para seguir viviendo. Puede que no llegue a la altura del Diario de Ana Frank (repito, son dos casos distintos), pero conocer de primera mano la evolución de Rywka [...]


    13. Did not really connect with thisThe book is rambling.e diary does not say very muchI do hope they find more about her



    14. Este era uno de los libros que más ganas tenía de leer, una de las razones por lo que quería darle la oportunidad es que es un testimonio real de como se vivía en el gueto de Lódz.Otra de las razones es porque esta ambientado en el período de la segunda guerra mundial ya que fue un período terrible en la historia de la humanidad.El diario de Rykwa, como lo indica su título, es el diario de una joven judía que vivió en el gueto de Lódz, ella escribió este diario en un año, y a travé [...]


    15. I continue to read books about the time of Nazi Germany. Someone told me about this diary that was found years ago 1945 in Auschwitz-Birkenau by the crematorium and it stayed in a family until someone realized its value. Rywka Lipszyc was 14 yrs ago when she began the diary written from Lodz Poland ghetto for the jews policed by Nazi SS guards. There was also a jewish man who managed all the activities and the business inside. This diary was eventually translated and read by some experts esp Pro [...]


    16. El diario de Rywka refleja los pensamientos recurrentes de una adolescente incomprendida en el peor de los escenarios posibles. Pero su prosa no es tan desgarradora como me esperaba y más que un fiel testimonio del Holocausto, la autora enumera sus preocupaciones diarias con el único propósito de desahogar su frustración sobre el papel.Resulta evidente que Rywka no pensó en ningún momento que su diario fuera a sobrevivirla, de modo que escribía para sí misma, porque escribir la consolaba [...]


    17. Read in conjunction with research into the Lodz Ghetto for a grad school project, I was not able to finish completely, but a really interesting find, I'd like to go back and finish it when I have more time. Rywka's diary was found in a pile of discarded possessions at Auschwitz and kept safe for many years before publication. Though several diaries of young people in the Holocaust exist and have been published, this one gives a unique eye to the workers (primarily in textiles) in the Lodz Ghetto [...]



    18. Well worth reading, the diary of Rywka Lipszyc tells the story of just what it was like living in the Jewish ghetto in Lodz for six months in 1943-1944. But despite the appalling conditions, this is still the diary of a teenage girl, full of teenaged angst, rather self-centered, as Rywka tries to find her place in life. Like many teens she is somewhat rebellious, especially towards the cousins with whom she lives. The fact that the diary survived is amazing, as is the story of its history, along [...]


    19. nientedipersonaletervista.oEra oltre un anno che aspettavo l'occasione giusta per leggere questo diario. Anche se non sono una fan dei diari penso che si debbano invece portare alla luce, soprattutto quando raccontano le storie di quelli che sono sopravvissuti all'Olocausto. Dopo il Diario di Anna Frank e dopo Avevano spento anche la luna mi è sembrato giusto dare il giusto valore anche a Rywka. Non vi parlerò della sua storia, simile a molte altre. Vi parlerò di quello che è stato per me [...]


    20. Ricorda: Quelli che se ne vanno per primi si prendono cura dei vivi e li preparano al futuro. (Epigrafe scritta all'entrata del Centro per l'Olocausto e per le famiglie ebree di San Francisco).Il diario di Rywka fu trovato da un medico, come un fiore solitario, tra le macerie dei crematori di Auschwitz nella primavera del 1945. Passò per numerose mani prima di essere pubblicato nel 2014.Rywka scriveva in polacco, su un quaderno scolastico ed il diario era lungo 110 pagine. Conosciamo numerosi d [...]


    21. Sometimes I think there is a temptation to rate virtually every book about the Holocaust 5 stars because they are so emotionally packed and horrifying in their exposure of injustice. This diary was a bit different, and it's power and impact were far more subtle. Found in the ashes of the Auschwitz crematoria by a female Russian soldier, it was privately kept until 2014.Rywka ( pronounced Rif-ka ) was a typical 13 yr old living in the Jewish ghetto in Lodz, Germany. The diary was written in 1943 [...]


    22. The Diary of Rywka Lipszyc is a diary found in Auschwitz by the Red Army in 1945 and first published in San Francisco in 2014. Zinaida Berezovskaya, a Red Army doctor found the diary near the gas chamber. She took it back to Russia with her where it remained until her death in 1983. It went to her son Ghen Shangin-Berezovskaya in Moscow until is death in 1992. His daughter, Anastasia Shangina-Berezovskaya first found it in 1995 and took it to San Francisco when she returned in 1995. Understandin [...]


    23. Una forte testimonianza dell'orrore che fu la vita nel ghetto ai tempi dell' olocausto, dove la paura, la fame, le lunghe ore di lavoro la facevano da padrone.Migliaia di persone costrette ad accettare un destino avverso.Il diario di Rywka, o meglio i suoi pensieri, in cui sono racchiusi gli sforzi per conservare la speranza durante la disperazione che montava giorno dopo giorno, aiutano a comprendere quanto fosse difficile.-" Il segreto per non cedere al dolore è sforzarsi di dominarlo."-Un im [...]


    24. Un témoignage bouleversant et très émouvant.Certains passages m'ont donnés les larmes aux yeux. Rywka nous partage une telle bouffée d'espoir dans un monde si barbare.On ressent très fortement sa difficulté à écrire au début de son journal (elle a dû arrêté l'école à l'âge de 10 ans, dès l'ouverture du ghetto) mais au fur et à mesure, elle s'ouvre. Et ses phrases deviennent particulièrement poignantes. Un livre impossible à noter. Un livre impossible à juger. Rywka, elle-mê [...]


    25. First off, I would like to say I loved the background story on her, her family, life and those important to her. In addition to, the overall history of what was happening in the area where she lived, both give you a much deeper understanding and insight to not only who she was, but what it was like to endure all that she and others had to either to survive or in the end like so many: dead.Having won this book through the giveaway, I'm so happy I did. It was an insightful read even for someone l [...]


    26. En realidad, un 4.5/5.No recomiendo leer este libro, más bien, casi LES OBLIGO a que le echen un vistazo. Pasa lo mismo que con El Diario de Ana Frank, es un libro que hay que leerse al menos una vez en la vida. No hace falta leerlo más de una vez, se te quedará grabado en la memoria para siempre. Este libro me ha enseñado lo cruel que puede ser el ser humano, y también me ha mostrado el sufrimiento que han llegado a experimentar millones de judíos en la II Guerra Mundial. Para saber más [...]


    27. Il diario di Rywka Lipszyc rappresenta un’inestimabile documento storico di uno dei periodi più neri della storia dell’umanità: l’Olocausto. Il diario ha compiuto una lunga traversata per giungere sino ai nostri giorni. Fu ritrovato nella primavera del 1945 tra le rovine di Aushwitz-Birkenau da Zinaida Berezovskaya, un medico militare dell’Armata Rossa, che decise di portarlo con se in Siberia e conservarlo fino alla sua morte, avvenuta nel 1983.

    28. Il Diario di Rywka Lipszyc rappresenta un vero e proprio tesoro storico in grado di documentare una delle pagine più nere ed atroci della storia umana contemporanea attraverso le parole, il cuore, le paure, i timori e le speranze di una giovane adolescente costretta a diventare donna circondata dall'odio razziale, dalla segregazione e dagli orrori del ghetto di Lódz¹!Tutta la recensione su : leggereinsilenzio/
