Bat-Chen Shahak was a young Israeli girl with a passion for writing. She was just a teenager when she was killed in Tel Aviv by a suicide bomber in March 1996. After her death, her family gathered her writing—diaries, notebooks, letters, and drawings—into The Bat-Chen Diaries. A young dreamer who wrote about love and hoped for peace, Bat-Chen’s spirit lives on through her words. Her story has been translated into many languages and continues to inspire readers across the globe.
