- First edition
"This book is a companion to the documentary film Making Light in Terezin. It includes the text from 40 hours of filmed interviews with Holocaust survivors and scholars, much of which ended up on the editing-room floor given the film's running time of less than 90 minutes. These personal recollections and scholarly findings reveal the true story of how the Jews in the Terezin concentration camp (in what is now the Czech Republic) resisted the Nazis and were empowered through the arts and humor. It is a story not only of survival but also of the triumph of a culture of artistic expression. Instead of focusing on the horrors of the Holocaust, this book celebrates the creative spirit that was alive--and helped to save lives--in Terezin in 1943"--Cover.
