Lunch & Learn Series with Dick Kuhn

The Secret Concentration Camp Diary of Odd Nansen

Hailed by The New Yorker as “among the most compelling documents to come out of the war,” From Day to Day is a World War II concentration camp diary—one of only a handful ever translated into English—secretly written by Odd Nansen, a Norwegian political prisoner. Nansen’s diary entries detail his palpable longing for his wife and family, his constantly frustrated hopes for release, and his horror at the especially barbaric treatment reserved for the Jews. The diary brilliantly illuminates Nansen’s daily struggle, not only to survive, but to preserve his sanity and maintain his humanity in a world engulfed by fear and hate.
