Rutka's Notebook

Today is Anne Frank’s birthday.  Here on Earth, a program on Wisconsin Public Radio, offers a program on Rutka Laskier’s diary.  Ruska’s diary has just been discovered and published.  She was a 14-year-old Polish Jew killed in Auschwitz who is being called the Polish Anne Frank. 

Just the story of her half sister discovering that her father had previous children who were killed in the Holocaust is enough to cause chills. 

The program will be available to listen to in the next day or so.
