Synopsis

Terezin A Story of the Holocaust by Ruth Thomson

Terezin is a remarkable book that tells the Holocaust story of the Terezin/Theresienstadt fortified ghetto - where the Nazis imprisoned thousands of Jews during the Second World War - and from where many of those thousands were sent to their deaths. The book features first-hand accounts of life in the town as well as moving works of art from some of the artists who were incarcerated there.

Reviews
