Synopsis:

The words and images inscribed in this facsimile edition--by children and grandparents, factory workers and farmhands, professionals and intellectuals, musicians and artists--reflect both joy and trepidation felt during the last months of the Holocaust.

Synopsis:

“With simple means, without any ‘title, this book should in distant times always be in your memory.”

 

An imprisoned bookbinder wrote these words in a small blank book that he had secretly crafted from pilfered materials at the Terez&iacute;n (Theresienstadt) concentration camp in September 1944. He presented the album to a fellow prisoner, twenty-one-year-old Marianka Zadik&oacute;w. Over the next several months, as the Nazis pressed forward with mass deportations from Terez&iacute;n to Auschwitz, Marianka began to collect inscriptions and sketches from her fellow inmates.

Marianka Zadik&oacute;ws album, presented here in a facsimile edition, is a poignant document from the last months of the Holocaust. The words and images inscribed here&#8212;by children and grandparents, factory workers and farmhands, professionals and intellectuals, musicians and artists&#8212;reflect both joy and trepidation. They include passages of remembered verse, lovingly executed drawings, and hurried farewells on the eve of transport to Auschwitz. The great German-Jewish scholar Rabbi Leo Baeck, one of the elders of the camp, offers Marianka an inscription about Jewish self-discovery, and participants in Terez&iacute;ns now-famous musical performances fill several pages with musical annotation.

Facing-page translations render the books multitude of languages into English, while historical and biographical notes give details, where known, of the fates of those whose words are recorded here. An introduction by acclaimed Holocaust scholar Deb&oacute;rah Dwork tells the story of the Terez&iacute;n camp and how Marianka and her family fared while imprisoned there.

The array of voices and the glimpses into individual lives afforded us by The Terez&iacute;n Album make it an arresting reminder of the sustaining power of care, community, and hope amid darkness.

“With simple means, without any ‘title, this book should in distant times always be in your memory.”

 

An imprisoned bookbinder wrote these words in a small blank book that he had secretly crafted from pilfered materials at the Terez&iacute;n (Theresienstadt) concentration camp in September 1944. He presented the album to a fellow prisoner, twenty-one-year-old Marianka Zadik&oacute;w. Over the next several months, as the Nazis pressed forward with mass deportations from Terez&iacute;n to Auschwitz, Marianka began to collect inscriptions and sketches from her fellow inmates.

Marianka Zadik&oacute;ws album, presented here in a facsimile edition, is a poignant document from the last months of the Holocaust. The words and images inscribed here&#8212;by children and grandparents, factory workers and farmhands, professionals and intellectuals, musicians and artists&#8212;reflect both joy and trepidation. They include passages of remembered verse, lovingly executed drawings, and hurried farewells on the eve of transport to Auschwitz. The great German-Jewish scholar Rabbi Leo Baeck, one of the elders of the camp, offers Marianka an inscription about Jewish self-discovery, and participants in Terez&iacute;ns now-famous musical performances fill several pages with musical annotation.

Facing-page translations render the books multitude of languages into English, while historical and biographical notes give details, where known, of the fates of those whose words are recorded here. An introduction by acclaimed Holocaust scholar Deb&oacute;rah Dwork tells the story of the Terez&iacute;n camp and how Marianka and her family fared while imprisoned there.

The array of voices and the glimpses into individual lives afforded us by The Terez&iacute;n Album make it an arresting reminder of the sustaining power of care, community, and hope amid darkness.
