From Our Editors

Of the 15,000 children under 15 years of age who came to Terezin Concentration Camp between 1942 and 1944, less than 100 survived. Explore the poignant poems and pictures young Terezin inmates created, expressing their daily miseries, fears, hope and courage. The Terezin ghetto in the hills outside Prague was a unique concentration camp designed to hide the Nazi genocide of the Jews: a so-called gift to the Jews. Filled with artists and intellectuals, culture thrived in the ghetto, along with starvation, disease and dread. Each inhabitant was condemned to die in advance. Haunting, disturbing and extraordinary, I Never Saw Another Butterfly reveals Terezin life from a child’s perspective.
