From the website of the Azrieli Foundation’s Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program:
Molly Applebaum is a Polish-Canadian Holocaust survivor and author of “Buried Words: The Diary of Molly Applebaum”. During the war, Molly and her cousin Helen found refuge on a farm, where their only hope for survival was to be hidden away underground – in a box. A unique and poignant document, the diary is a stark confession of her fears and anxieties, her despair and her secrets, and above all, her fervent wish to stay alive. Buried Words offers a fascinating reflection on both Molly’s wartime experiences and her postwar life.
