SURNAME 1 Reconstruction of Victim using Diaries of David Sierakowak and Adam Czerniakow In the early 1940s in the city called Lodz, Poland, German occupiers started to evict gentiles from the slum area which was in the district of Baluty; this was done so that they can pave the way for hundreds of thousands of Jews who were concentrated in the region from other parts of the city, elsewhere in Poland and the rest of conquered Europe. The Germans sealed off the area perimeter and called it “Ghetto Litzmannstadt," also known as Lodz ghetto. David Sierakowak and his family were among the people who were forced to relocate, and their lives were extinguished in the Holocaust. Before the German invasion in 1939, David started to write his diary when he was in the Zionist youth camp. In his diary, he used to write about his daily entries; he continued to write until he met his untimely death caused by hunger and exhaustion. In this essay, we will use direct quotes from David's diary and their meaning combined with some elements from Adam Czerniakow dairy that can be used in reconstructing a victim's history of this kind of wartime. David honestly shares about his life and all that is happening in the world around him. With all information that is written in his diary, we can see precisely what is healthy as well as how it affected the population of Jewish in the Lodz and how the Nazis were trying to prosecute them. It also showed the normality of losing hope, the ever lingering death ideas, as well as how that affected the interpretations that David was putting forth every Day about his surroundings. Hope is a positive thing that has been in existence in humans' lives through all the ages. Every human being who is alive has an idea of faith and what they want in life. But to people who were living in Lodz ghetto had a different idea about hope. The hopes they had were sure; they tried to save their lives from death and the destruction they were facing from Nazis.
