Not an easy read (what book about the Holocaust is?) but definitely good. Excellent information about the Terezin/Theresienstadt Ghetto in Czechoslovakia. Covers everything from the decision to deport Jews to ghettos like Theresienstadt, living conditions, the people who lived there, and how the Nazis came to use it as a sham--even allowing Red Cross workers to take a tour there to view a "model Jewish community" and the making of a propaganda film there. All of the text and artwork is from things that were found in the ghetto after its liberation. An excellent resource about a terrible chapter in human history. Includes source notes, glossary, timeline, loads of illustrations and primary sources.
