This is what I found on WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
The diary of a teenager who was murdered by Nazis in 1942 will be published later this month after spending nearly 70 years in a bank vault.
Growing up in Przemysl, Poland, which was under Soviet occupation until the 1941 Nazi invasion, Renia Spiegel was 18 when Nazis murdered her after finding her hiding in an attic.
Titled Renia’s Diary: A Young Girl’s Life in the Shadow of the Holocaust, the book will be released Sept. 24. She began her diary in January 1939 when she was 15 years old, and across nearly 700 pages she describes how she and her sister were separated from their mother, as well as how she fell in love with a boy named Zygmunt Schwarzer.
“She left the diary with her boyfriend, who wrote the chilling, heartbreaking last lines in the journal,” CNN says.
The last entry in the journal was, “Three shots! Three lives lost! All I can hear are shots, shots.”
After 70 years of sitting in a bank vault, Renia Spiegel’s diary detailing her life in the Przemyśl ghetto is being released.

Listening to Renia’s sister describing how neither she, nor her mother were able to read the diary, as it brought up too many painful memories. Why publish it, she is asked? “For the world. Not for me.”
What an extraordinary story and interview. https://t.co/XywdpeSvGE

For almost 70 years, the secret Holocaust diary of a Polish Jewish teenager was sealed away in a NY bank vault. Shot dead by the Nazis, Renia’s story was too painful for her surviving sister & mother to read. Now it’s finally to be published by her family.https://t.co/5OYv0iNq5s
