Product Description

The Nazis renamed Terezin Theresienstadt. A supposed ghetto, Terezin became a workcamp stopping group, holding Jews before they were shipped "off east." However, it had a unique aspect to it: Terezin housed Jewish artists forced to work on illustrating Nazi art and diagrams. With access to their materials, in their free time they would draw life as it really was, and not as they were forced to draw. Archival photographs of people and artifacts, quotes from discovered journals, and art drawn by Terezin artists creates a moving portrait of one town through the eyes of those who lived, worked, and died there. "Beautified" for visiting Red Cross agents, used as background for a Nazi propaganda film, and a center for "useful, "transport-exempt"" Jews, Terezin has a unique history. 64 indexed pages, hardcover with dust jacket.

Publisher's Description

Through inmates’ own voices and artwork, Terezín explores the lives of Jewish people in one of the most infamous of the Nazi transit camps.

Between 1941 and 1945, Nazi Germany turned the small town of Terezín, Czechoslovakia, into a ghetto, and then into a transit camp for thousands of Jewish people. It was a "show" camp, where inmates were forced to use their artistic talents to fool the world about the truth of gas chambers and horrific living conditions for imprisoned Jews. Here is their story, told through the firsthand accounts of those who were there. In this accessible, meticulously researched book, Ruth Thomson allows the inmates to speak for themselves through secret diary entries, artwork, and excerpts from memoirs and recordings narrated after the war. Terezín: Voices from the Holocaust is a moving portrait that shows the strength of the human will to endure, to create, and to survive.
