Yad Vashem “Let The World Read And Know” The Oneg Shabbat Archives

Photos, Documents, Diaries from the Archives

The diaries found in the Oneg Shabbat archives present segments cut out of the very fabric of life, telling directly of events and experiences, depicting the bare, unadulterated truth. The diary has something personal to it, something emotional and intimate, with watchfullness and self-reflection accompanying the objective, factual material as well. This material abounds in details of daily struggle for survival, in actions and events occurring in the life within the ghetto, and in portraits of people involved in the communal life, their thoughts and feelings under the shadow of death.
