MEET THE AUTHOR: Elizabeth Bellak

In observance of the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust, Elizabeth Bellak in conversation with her daughter, Alexandra Bellak.
Moderated by Robin Shulman,
journalist for Smithsonian Magazine.

Renia’s Diary: A Holocaust Journal (St. Martin’s Press) Renia Spiegel was born to a Jewish family in Poland in 1924. She began her diary at the start of 1939, right before the invasion of Poland by the German army. In 1942, she was forced to move to the Przemysl ghetto, but was smuggled out by her boyfriend Zygmunt and went into hiding with his parents. She was discovered by the Gestapo and murdered on July 30, 1942. Zygmunt survived to complete her diary with the account of their death.

Elizabeth Bellak (née Ariana Spiegel), born in 1930, was a child actress once called “the Polish Shirley Temple.” In 1942 she and her mother fled to Warsaw, and then to Austria, finally arriving in New York City, where she lives today. She is the sister of Renia Spiegel whose story is told in Renia’s Diary.

Alexandra Bellak is Renia’s niece who helped to have the diary translated to English, and urged her mother, Elizabeth Bellak to bring the story to light.
