Amira Keidar

Amira Keidar was born in 1963 in a kibbutz in Israel. In 2003, Rachel (Lalechka) gave her long-time friend, Amira's mother, her parents' diary from the Second World War which detailed the horrors and atrocities committed by the Nazis against the Jews in the Polish ghettos. When Amira read the diaries she knew she had to resign from her job as a TV researcher and write Lalechka's story, and in 2007 she travelled to Poland to research the story further. Amira now lives with her two daughters in the kibbutz where she was born.
