Helga's Diary

An authentic diary from Theresienstadt, Room 28

The diary of Helga Pollak written in Room 28, Girls Home L 410,  is the heart and red thread of the book The Girls of Room 28. Without her diary, the story of these girls would not have been written and would not have become known.

The first edition was published in 2004 by Droemer Publishing House., Munic.

Ten years later, the complete diary of Helga Pollak along with the calendar notes of her father Otto Pollak. was published in German by Edition Room 28.
