Summary"Between 1941 and 1945, the Nazi authorities turned the small town of Terezín, Czechoslovakia, into a ghetto and then into a transit camp for thousands of Jewish people, many of them artists. It was a 'show' camp, where inmates were forced to use their artistic talents to fool the world, hiding the truth of gas chambers and horrific living conditions for imprisoned Jews. In Terezín, the inmates speak for themselves through secret diary entries, artwork, and excerpts from memoirs and recordings made after the war." Back cover
