Dancing on a Powder Keg: Letters from 1933-1944, Poems from Theresienstadt

Ilse Weber


Ilse Weber’s letters document the life of a young Jewish intellectual and known writer, as she and her family were gradually trapped in Nazi occupied Czechoslovakia. Her poems, written and performed in the Theresienstadt Ghetto, became an international symbol of the camp and ghetto poetry. Ilse and her son Tommy were murdered in Auschwitz.
