In this hour long tours a knowledgeable volunteer docent you will guide you through the exhibition The Girl in the Diary: Searching for Rywka from the Lodz Ghetto.
In 1945, a diary was discovered in the liberated Auschwitz-Birkenau Camp. It was written by a 14-year-old Jewish girl named Rywka Lipszyc and documented her life in the Łódz Ghetto between October 1943 and April 1944. Rywka’s diary tells the story of a young girl who lost her siblings and parents, but never lost hope or her faith. Through historical artifacts and documents, interactive touch screens, documentary videos, and photographs, the exhibition explores the story of a young girl’s fight for survival in the Łódz Ghetto and reconstructs what might have happened to Rywka.
