Books about Terezin/Theresienstadt #austria-czech
Since there have been a few enquiries recently after my post I thought I
should share the titles of some books I have about the concentration camp my
parents met in.

For those who read German, let me add an extraordinary diary (not
memoir) written by a 13 year old girl:
"Mein Theresienstaedter Tagebuch 1943-1944" By Helga Pollak Kinsky.
I am working with the author and her German publisher to bring this
book to an English-speaking audience.
Helga Kinsky's diary was also a key source for this book/educational project:
"The Girls of Room 28: Friendship, Hope, and Survival in
Theresienstadt" by Hannelore Brenner.
