Child Survivors of Terezin

By Thelma Gruenbaum

This challenging and compelling new book reveals the previously undocumented life of the children at Terezin, a Nazi concentration camp in Czechoslovakia. During the war approximately 10,000 children were held here. Concentrating on a group of boys, aged between 12 and 14 at the time of imprisonment, Nesarim: Child Survivors of Terezin recounts their stroies both during and after the war. The 10 boys detailed here shared a room with 30 others and they called themselves the Nesarim or eagles. This is their poignant story, one of survival, strength and above all, brotherhood.
