Reviews

“Theresienstadt was a Nazi prison camp intentionally designed to deceive the world about the true nature of the Third Reich. ?Vera Schiff’s eyewitness account of the prison and its inhabitants paints a vivid picture of the human response to inhumane conditions. Her book is an invaluable contribution to the historical record. Writing with dignity, intelligence, honesty, and skill, Ms. Schiff creates an intimate portrait of a place, a time, and a valiant prison population determined to celebrate life and culture. This is a remarkable book by a remarkable woman.”
