Everyone knows of the atrocities that the Nazi's perpetrated during the Holocaust, but how many people stop and think about the children that were in the concentration camps? Or what they had to bear? Shocking as it is the children at Terezin were allowed to have some time together, with a former art teacher, to sketch and create, and to basically have a form of art therapy for all of the horrors they were seeing (not that the Nazi's realized that therapy was occurring.) This book captures some of the poetry and artwork that these children created. Their fears, their hopes, and their dreams are laid out in the open for all to read. It is a powerful book and I would highly recommend it to all, especially to those taking or teaching a class on this time period.
