This book is dedicated to a tragic event of the Second World War, the deportation of three thousand Jewish prisoners from the Terezín ghetto to Riga in January and August 1942. It is based on archival documents and the accounts of eyewitnesses, survivors of the Terezín and Riga ghettos, of the concentration camps Salaspils, Kaiserwald, Stutthof, Buchenwald, Dachau, and of the death marches. Augmented by numerous photographs and documents, it gives a three-dimensional picture of Jewish life in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia and illustrates human confrontation of the machine of destruction.
