Most scholarly studies of Holocaust victims rely on the stories of those few who survived. Survivors typically told their stories from a perspective of several years later. In this paper, we examine stories victims wrote during the Holocaust -- their diaries. All were written day-to-day as diarists attempted to graple with the destruction of their world; all were composed by writers in one place and time: the Warsaw Ghetto 1939-1942.
