Nazi Germany was a time of brutality and oppression to many, for the Jews of Czechoslovakia it was particularly horrific. The Jewish population there was almost annihilated due to being sent by the thousands to the concentration camps of Theresienstadt and Auschwitz. This book begins earlier, tracing the history of the Jewish population of the area from the Middle Ages to the modern times, and concludes with a chapter devoted to tracing the movement of European and particularly Czech Jews to the camps.
