A collection of diaries written by young people, ages 12 to 22, during the Holocaust. Some of the writers were refugees, others were hiding or passing as non-Jews, some were imprisoned in ghettos, and nearly all perished before liberation. Facing History and Ourselves has published a study guide to accompany this book. In addition, the film I’m Still Here is a video companion to the anthology, which educators can stream from our collection.
