About this title


Not since Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl has such an intimately candid, deeply affecting account of a childhood compromised by Nazi tyranny come to light. As a fourteen-year-old Jewish boy living in Prague in the early 1940s, Petr Ginz dutifully kept a diary that captured the increasingly precarious texture of daily life.  His stunningly mature paintings, drawings, and writings reflect his insatiable appetite for learning and experience and openly display his growing artistic and literary genius. Petr was killed in a gas chamber at Auschwitz at the age of sixteen. His diaries recently discovered in a Prague attic under extraordinary circumstances are an invaluable historical document and a testament to one remarkable child’s insuppressible hunger for life.

About the Author:

Petr Ginz died in 1944, aged 16. His sister, Chava Pressburger, who introduces the diary, now lives in Israel.
