Reviews

"This beautiful evocation of heartwarming friendship in the darkest of times is unforgettable." --Elie Wiesel "The insights of the survivors and stories of the camp's victims are unforgettable and full of poignant humanity, conveyed through letters, photos, diaries, and remembrances. . . . Well detailed and inspiring, Brenner's book, especially her heartfelt epilogue, pays glowing tribute to these heroic survivors." --Publishers Weekly "Brenner chronicles the remarkable artistic experiments undertaken by the girls, especially their enthusiastic production of the children's opera Brundib r. An inspiring story of courage rendered through impressive personal and historical detail." --Kirkus Reviews "The story of this children's home in Theresienstadt takes us to the limit of the bearable, to the place where compassion, fear, and the temptation to simply turn away all lie in wait. To resist that temptation--isn't that what the historical record must achieve? --DIE ZEIT "This handful of girls wanted their memories of their dead friends and their time in Theresienstadt not to be forgotten. They wanted to make the story of their survival, and the love and friendship that their caretakers showerd them, unforgettable. Together with the author, they have succeeded. In Hannelore Brenner, these women have found someone who listened to them, who read their albums of poetry, their diaries, and their chronicles, and who has written a wonderful book." --PRAGER ZEITUNG "Brenner has gathered together these stories with great sensitivity. She makes the past spring to life and gracefully places the personal memories of these girls into a historical context, while at the same time offering solid research and background information regarding life in Theresienstadt and the political situation of the time." --S CHSISCHE ZEITUNG
