The Terezin Diary of Gonda Redlich

Overview

In 1941, the fortress city of Terezin, outside Prague, was ostensibly converted into a model ghetto, where Jews could temporarily reside before being sent to a more permanent settlement. In reality it was as a way station to Auschwitz. When young Gonda Redlich was deported to Terezin in December of 1941, the elders selected him to be in charge of the youth welfare department. He kept a diary during his imprisonment, chronicling the fear and desperation of life in the ghetto, the attempts people made to create a ...

Overview

In 1941, the fortress city of Terezin, outside Prague, was ostensibly converted into a model ghetto, where Jews could temporarily reside before being sent to a more permanent settlement. In reality it was as a way station to Auschwitz. When young Gonda Redlich was deported to Terezin in December of 1941, the elders selected him to be in charge of the youth welfare department. He kept a diary during his imprisonment, chronicling the fear and desperation of life in the ghetto, the attempts people made to create a cultural and social life, and the disease, death, rumors, and hopes that were part of daily existence. Before his own deportation to Auschwitz, with his wife and son, in 1944, he concealed his diary in an attic, where it remained until discovered by Czech workers in 1967.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
These recently discovered diaries were kept by a Czech Zionist youth leader during the nearly three years he spent in the Nazi's ``model ghetto,'' created outside Prague as a transit camp for Jews en route to death in the East. The book offers a poignant, detailed record of the inmates' daily struggle for survival and their painful pretense of leading a normal life. Copiously annotated by Youngstown State University history professor Friedman and ably translated by Kutler, a visiting professor of Hebrew at Kent State University, the diaries recount Redlich's heroic efforts to care for and educate Terezin's 15,000 children and his agony as a member of the Transport and Appeals committees, forced to help fill quotas that selected fellow inmates for deportation to Auschwitz and other death camps. His romantic, compassionate, hopeful spirit bravely denied and defied defeat until his own deportation, together with his wife and son, in October 1944. Photos not seen by PW. (Nov.)

Redlich kept his diary in Hebrew and Czech while he was a resident of the ghetto established as a transit point for Jews bound for Auschwitz. He concealed it before his own deportation, and it was not discovered until 1967. Translated and thoroughly annotated, his compelling record of hope and despair is here made available. Annotation c.
