«I must tell». These words by Masha Rolnikaite (1927 – 2016), a Holocaust survivor and the author of “I Must Tell” book, became her motto and gave her life meaning. The diary which she was writing risking her life was translated into 17 languages and published. Her voice has come through the decades, bearing witness for millions of victims. One voice out of six million has reached us. A child’s voice, but it has great power of sincerity, humanity, and talent.
