Article in Ha’aretz: Warsaw diary offers fascinating look into Jewish girls’ prewar life

In Ha’aretz a very unique diary written by a group of Jewish Zionist teenagers from Warsaw in 1929 is presented in this article by Ofer Aderet. The diary was donated to the GFH archives by Esti Kuszmierz, the daughter of one of the young girls who wrote in this colorful group diary, Bracha, a Holocasut survivor who escaped the Warsaw ghetto after the uprising in 1943. The special notebook was given as a present to one of the girls’ counselors who made Aliya to Israel before the outbreak of WWII and later given to Bracha, who also made Aliaya.
