Renia Spiegel was just 15 years old when she started documenting her life in 1939 in Poland on the cusp of Nazi occupation.
Like Anne Frank, Renia’s diary became a record of her daily life as the Nazis overtook Europe. She writes about her school life, teenage love, family despair — with poignancy, strength, and thoughtfulness. Join us as we revisit her life and hear from her surviving sister Elizabeth and niece Alexandra Bellak in conversation moderated by journalist Robin Shulman.
We’ll honor Renia and the 6 million Jews who perished in the Holocaust with a short memorial service, led by 92Y Rabbis and members of the 92Y Himan Brown Senior Center.
All are welcome to this online remembrance. Registration is free.
