Few diaries can have been written in more extraordinary circumstances than the one which a young Czech actress kept during the last few months of World War II. Not only was she on the run from the Nazis, following her dramatic escape from captivity: she was also searching desperately for her husband, whom she had last seen when they were prisoners together at Auschwitz.
afternoon we saw a group of male prisoners walking past in the distance – too
far away to talk to. They were clutching their grey prison blankets round
their bodies, and all we could see of their faces were their huge staring
eyes. They moved as slowly as ghosts. Would I recognise my Sasha among
them? Would he recognise me? I think about him all the time.
