Overview
Through inmates' own voices and artwork, Terezi1/2n explores the lives of Jewish people in one of the most infamous of the Nazi transit camps.

(Ages 10-14)

Between 1941 and 1945, Nazi Germany turned the small town of Terezi1/2n, Czechoslovakia, into a ghetto, and then into a transit camp for thousands of Jewish people. It was a "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 of those who were there. In this accessible, meticulously researched book, Ruth Thomson allows the inmates to speak for themselves through secret diary entries, artwork, and excerpts from memoirs and recordings narrated after the war. Terezi1/2n: Voices from the Holocaust is a moving portrait that shows the strength of the human will to endure, to create, and to survive.
Back matter includes a time line, a glossary, sources, and an index.
