Read full description of the books:



This is a heart-breaking and yet sweet book of children's poems, diary entries and artwork from Terezin, a Czech concentration during WWII. These children dream of home, the fleeting presence of butterflies and birds, ponder the loss of friends, and imagine a possible escape from the horror of their situation.

Almost all these artists died at Terezin or were later shipped to Auschwitz where they perished. A very few children survived: only .67% (100 out of 15,000). I love the following poem, most likely written by a child who only lived a few more years at most:

Birdsong

He doesn't know the world at all
Who stays in his nest and doesn't go out.
He doesn't know what birds know best
Nor what I want to sing about,
That the world is full of loveliness.

When dewdrops sparkle in the grass
And earth's aflood with morning light,
A blackbird sings upon a bush
To greet the dawning after night.
Then I know how fine it is to live.

Hey, try to open up your heart
To beauty; go to the woods someday
And weave a wreath of memory there.
Then if the tears obscure your way
You'll know how wonderful it is
To be alive.
