(1913 - 2001)
Born into a Jewish family in Sarajevo in 1913, Hanna Lévy-Hass studied in Belgrade in the 1930s. In 1944 she was captured by German occupation forces and spent a half year in a Gestapo jail before being taken to Bergen-Belsen, a concentration camp in Germany, where mass deaths resulted from starvation and disease. Her diary documenting her time at Bergen-Belsen was first published in English in 1982. She died in Jerusalem at the age of eighty-eight.
