In Rutka’s diary, she discusses the topics of love and marriage quite often. Rutka is engulfed by the hatred of the Nazis, who have placed her in the Będzin Ghetto. Rutka talks about the “Aktions” held by the Nazis, and she mentions her own fears of the future in the diary through many different facets (including marriage).
Rutka’s diary is quite short, but the young girl shows her humanity through her yearning for love and affection in a time where malice was commonplace. Rutka’s diary was hidden and later found.
Rutka was a Polish Jew, and she would die at the age of 14 at Auschwitz Concentration Camp.
