The author captures her struggle as a teenager trying to save her family against all odds in the notorious concentration camp of Theresienstadt during the Second World War.

A very powerful book. com User, February 25, 2004.

Vera Schiff, born in 1926, lived in Theresienstadt from 1941-1945. Her book is an invaluable contribution to the historical record. After the war she immigrated to Israel and later to Canada. She is the author of a prize winning memoir and also Hitler's Inferno. 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. This is a remarkable book by a remarkable woman.

Winner of the Elie Wiesel history of the holocaust award; this sensitive and moving book is an eyewitness account of the three-year struggle by the author to save her family in the concentration camp the Nazis dressed as the model camp. In fact it was the antechamber to the death housing many of Europe's most famous Jews who cared for their sick, schooled their children and retained their humanity. Defiance has many faces!

This is a beautiful, deeply moving book. Told in a simple, unaffected style, it describes in vivid detail the author's life in pre-war Prague, the three years she spent as a teenager at Theresienstadt (aka Terezin), the many terrible things that she saw, and the resourcefulness with which she repeatedly avoided death.

I have read many books about the Holocaust, but the author's loyalty to her family and determination to survive profoundly affected me. Because she spent so much time in Terezin she is also an important witness to what happened there. The camp was unique -- a showplace for the Nazis, without a gas chamber, that was used to deceive the Red Cross. Art, music, drama, even an opera were created and performed there. And yet it was also a terrible place where tens of thousands suffered and most eventually perished. That contradiction pervades the book and makes it unique.

The text badly needed a copy editor and some of the English usage is awkward. But such minor imperfections are part of its honesty and immediacy. There are also some photographs, but they are frustratingly dark and difficult to see.

Nevertheless, I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about Terezin and the heroic and affecting story of this unusual survivor.

Thank you, Mrs. Schiff, for sharing your haunting story, and allowing me to feel closer to my grandmother, as well as to my heritage.
