Dr. Aharon Pick diary
Dr. Aharon Pick (also spelled Pik or Pieck) created his diary in the Šiauliai ghetto between 1941 and 1944. In it, he remembers life in Lithuania before the Soviet take over in June 1940, life under the Soviet regime, his efforts to have his son be accepted at Vilna University, and the situation in Lithuania and in Šiauliai, particularly on the eve of the German invasion in June 1941. He then describes Šiauliai ghetto, educational and cultural activities in the ghetto, unsanitary conditions and public health in the ghetto, and Judenrat activities in the ghetto. David Pick buried the diary after his father’s death in June 1944 and retrieved it following liberation in July 1944.
