I Never Saw Another Butterfly: Children’s Drawings and Poems from Terezin Concentration Camp 1942-1944. The documents collected in this publication have been chosen from the archive of the State Jewish Museum in Prague. These drawings and poems speak to us; these are the voices which have been preserved, the voices of reminder, of truth, of hope. An important book in history to share with family, friends and students.
“They were created at the camp in secret art classes taught by Austrian artist and educator Friedl Dicker-Brandeis. The book takes its title from a poem by Pavel Friedmann, a young man born in 1921 who was incarcerated at Theresienstadt and was later killed at Auschwitz.
The works were compiled after World War II by Czech art historian Hana Volavková, the only curator of the Jewish Museum in Prague to survive the Holocaust. Where known, the fate of each young author is listed. Most died prior to the camp being liberated.” -Wikipedia
