Girl with Two LandscapesGirl with Two Landscapes: The Wartime Diary of Lena Jedwab, 1941–1945, by Lena Jedwab Rozenberg. $24.95 cloth 218 pp / ISBN 0-8419-1427-3, 2002, Holmes & Meier.


"An insightful, beautifully written entry into the world of a Jewish teen at a time of ultimate stress."
—Jewish Book World

"Not since The Diary of Anne Frank, has there been such a personalized account by an adolescent girl caught up in the turmoil and terror of World War II. Girl with Two Landscapes is an incredibly important and highly prized addition to Judaic Studies and Holocaust literature."
—Midwest Book Review

"Like Anne Frank, Etty Hillesum and Hannah Senesh, Lena Jedwab kept a diary during World War Two. Unlike them, she survived the Holocaust. Indeed, she was part of the largest group of European Jews to escape: between 1941 and 1945, an estimated 250,000 Eastern European Jews found refuge from the Nazis in the Soviet Union. Her journal is an important contribution to understanding this little-known aspect of Holocaust History. Originally published in Yiddish in 1999, it has been masterfully translated by Solon Beinfeld, with helpful introductions by Irena Klepfisz and Jan Gross."
—Women's Review of Books
