Terezin A Story of the Holocaust by Ruth Thomson


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.


A strong addition to the many books about the Holocaust. -- School Library Journal USA 20110201

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
