Requiem
Poems of the Terezin Ghetto

author: Paul B. Janeczko
illustrator: Various

Acclaimed poet Paul B. Janeczko gives voice to the indomitable creative community of the Czech concentration camp of Terezín (Theresienstadt), emphasizing its dignity, resilience, and commitment to art and music in the face of great brutality. Accented with dramatic illustrations by prisoners, found after World War II, Janeczko’s spare and powerful poems convey Terezín’s tragic legacy on an intimate, profoundly moving scale.

“Moving and brutal, a poetic remembrance of a tragedy too vast to forget.” — Kirkus Reviews
