Abstract:

"Presented to the world as a "model" town in propaganda films, Terezín (Theresienstadt) was in reality an overcrowded, disease ridden Nazi way-station for 140,000 prisoners, including 15,000 children, awaiting deportation to Auschwitz. [The film] focuses on Helga Kinsky who, with nine other survivors, describes the eerie paradoxes of life as children in the model ghetto. They were encouraged to draw and write, to publish their own magazines, and to perform in "Brundibar," a children's opera. But by the war's end, fewer than one in ten of these children was alive."--Container.
