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.

(Ages 10-14)


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.
Back matter includes a time line, a glossary, sources, and an index.

Editorial Reviews

An accessible, carefully researched work that effectively uses primary-source material to make the experience of the Jews of Terezin come alive
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

The voices of adults and children are a moving reminder of the horrors of the Holocaust and a powerful way to make history real to students. The modern photographs of Terezín are juxtaposed against images and photographs created in the 1940s, making for an interesting contrast
—School Library Journal (starred review)

This excellent book, a reminder of genocidal horrors, is fascinating on its own and enriches units on World War II.
—Library Media Connection (starred review)

A poignant legacy of writings, drawings and music. Historical exposition, diary excerpts and visual materials are placed side by side to make a compelling narrative
—Kirkus Reviews

Even libraries with substantial Holocaust collections will want this generously sized, illustrated account that blends the searing history of the horrific concentration camp with personal testimonies of those who were there, artwork of both established painters and children, and quotes from survivors oral histories and secret diary entries
—Booklist

Well written and visually appealing, Terezin will supplement personal interest and curricular requirements alike.…Unique perspective and extensive details provided in text and images.Most libraries will want to add this well executed social history to their collections.
—VOYA

A varied and fascinating account—for readers over age 8—of what was in truth a brutal transit camp
—Wall Street Jounal

In this hauntingly thorough monograph, horror never abates as truths and lies of history are clearly exposed.
—San Francisco Chronicle
