What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

The history of Theresienstadt is solidly augmented by Norbert Troller's autobiography, translated by Susan E. Cernyak-Spatz, herself a Theresienstadt survivor, and edited by Joel Shatzky.—Judaica Book News

This edition of Norbert Troller's Theresienstadt memoirs is an outstanding contribution to our knowledge of the Holocaust. It is a chilling and eloquent account of daily life in the Theresienstadt ghetto as well as a heroic story of survival. The memoir is well edited and tells a compelling story, enhanced by careful explanatory notes. The book has no current rivals in its field.—Sybil Milton

A vivid document of a dark time.—Library Journal
