Remember this day; remember it well. You will tell generations to come. Since 8 o'clock today we have been shut away in the ghetto. I live here now. The world is separated from me and I'm separated from the world.

Renia is a young girl who dreams of becoming a poet. But Renia is Jewish and the year is 1939. When Russia and Germany invade Poland, her world shatters. Separated from her mother, her life takes on a new urgency as she flees the city to escape night bombing raids, observes the disappearances of other Jewish families and, finally, witnesses the creation of the ghetto.

Remember this day; remember it well. You will tell generations to come. Since 8 o'clock today we have been shut away in the ghetto. I live here now. The world is separated from me and I'm separated from the world.

Renia is a young girl who dreams of becoming a poet. But Renia is Jewish and the year is 1939. When Russia and Germany invade Poland, her world shatters. Separated from her mother, her life takes on a new urgency as she flees the city to escape night bombing raids, observes the disappearances of other Jewish families and, finally, witnesses the creation of the ghetto.

But alongside the terror of war, there is also great beauty, as she begins to find her voice as a writer and falls in love for the first time. She and the boy she falls in love with, Zygmunt, share their first kiss a few hours before the Nazis reach her hometown. And it is Zygmunt who writes the final, heart-breaking entry in Renia's diary.

Recently rediscovered after seventy years, Renia's Diary is already being described as a classic of Holocaust literature. Written with a clarity and skill that is reminiscent of Anne Frank, it is an extraordinary testament to both the horrors of war, and to the life that can exist even in the darkest times.
