As noted in the blog post about Klara Wolf’s 1944-1945 Budapest diary, the Museum’s collection contains Holocaust diaries from 13 individuals.
Anita Meyer is one of these 13 diarists. Born in 1929, she was taken to a safe house in southern Holland by Anna Gisela Soehnlein. Meyer kept a diary recounting the passing days while she was in hiding.
In 1991, Anita (née Meyer) Budding donated her Holocaust journals to the Museum’s collection. Three journal entries from 1943 – 1945 are shown below—including one from May 5, 1945, the day the Netherlands was liberated from German occupation.
