A very powerful book. com User, February 25, 2004. I read this book because my grandmother also spent three years in Theresienstadt. Although she openly talks about her experience, I wanted to read about it from someone else's perspective. Mrs. Schiff is able to tell her story in such a way, that you can practically imagine yourself there. I admire her strength to survive, and her love and devotion towards her family.

Theresienstadt was a Nazi prison camp intentionally designed to deceive the world about the true nature of the Third Reich. Writing with dignity, intelligence, honesty, and skill, Ms. Schiff creates an intimate portrait of a place, a time, a valiant prison population determined to celebrate life and culture.
