Voices from the Holocaust

Reviewed by

Under Nazi rule, Terezín, a small town in Czechoslovakia, was transformed into a prison for Jewish people from 1941 to 1945. Tens of thousands of Jews were sent there before being transported east to Auschwitz. The Nazis used Terezín as a “show camp,” where they hosted a Red Cross commission, and went so far as to film a documentary showing a false picture of the camp’s conditions. A Jewish Council in the camp taught children in secret classes, disguised as stories or games, and others organized performances of theatre, music, and poetry. This book collects first-hand accounts, photographs, sketches and other images to tell the story. For ages ten to fourteen.
