Written as a diary and later as events became more grim, written to be later read by the authoress's beloved....this book is a translated accounting of life of a young literature student in Paris during the early 40s. The authoress comes from a well connected family of refinement; also they are jewish and thus prey to the horrors of the time. The last three written words of the journal are, "Horror! Horror! Horror!".
