Mein Theresienstädter Tagebuch 1943-1944

by Helga Pollak-Kinsky

The authentic Terezin Diary of Helga Pollak-Kinsky, along with the calender entries of her father Otto Pollak are the heart of the book about 'The Girls of Room 28' which could not have been written without Helga's precious testimonies. It helped not only the author to reconstruct the children's life in the ghetto and to chronicle the events in Theresienstadt. For the surviving women themselves it became a catalysator in their process of remembering their life in the ghetto and the children and people they knew.


For the book about 'The Girls of Room 28' 'those parts of the diary were used to tell the story of 'The Girls of Room 28'.


In 2014 the complete Theresienstadt diary of Helga Pollak-Kinsky was published. It is embedded in her biographical context and tells, along with the calendar entries of her father, her very personal story.  It is published by
