The heart of this book is a compilation of remembered recipes written down by malnourished women in Terezin, a Nazi concentration camp in Czechoslovakia.

In stark contrast to the meager food they were eating in the camp, the recipes in these pages record the rich and robust tradition of Czech Jewish life.
