It addresses special aspects of the ghetto and the history of Czech Jewry, including the changing image of the Terezin ghetto; the history of the closing gates: the Jewish newspaper in Prague during the occupation years, 1939-1945; women in the Terezin ghetto; humor as a weapon: songs, skits, cabaret shows, and a satirical newspaper in the Terezin ghetto; the status of the “Prominents” in the Terezin ghetto; Heinz Prossnitz’ package aid; games in the shadow of the crematoria: the children’s barracks in the Birkenau family camp (September 1943 – July 1944); major dates in the history of the Jews of Bohemia and Moravia during Nazi rule.
