Voices from the Holocaust
author: Ruth Thomson
Between 1941 and 1945, the small town of Terezín, Czechoslovakia, was a transit camp for thousands of Jewish people. It was a Nazi “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 and artwork of those who were there.
Back matter includes a time line, a glossary, sources, and an index.
