JNS.org – The research team of the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem is searching for information about the women named in a diary and Haggada that was written during the Holocaust.

Regina Honigman, who was imprisoned and forced to work at the Gabersdorf Camp in Czechoslovakia, was the author of the diary, in which she recorded her daily life and listed the names of other female prisoners. The diary also includes some poems, autographs, and an improvised Haggadah.
