Documenting works produced by Jewish artists interned during World War II at Terezin, a concentration camp in Czechoslovakia designed by the Nazis as a "model" ghetto for propaganda purposes, this catalogue presents good reproductions of 46 drawings and watercolors, among them idealized representations of the camp produced under coercion as well as images created in secret to record the realities of the prisoners' everyday life. Six texts include a history of Terezin and its organized and unofficial art activities, discussions of individual artists, a biography of interned Austrian designer Friedl Dicker-Brandeis (who provided art instruction to children in the camp), and descriptions of life in Terezin by two survivors.
