Yesterday, I recalled the saddest and most beautiful book I ever read (thanks to my parents having a copy): I Never Saw Another Butterfly: Children's Drawings and Poems from Terezin Concentration Camp, 1942–1944 ....
From the book synopsis:
"A total of 15,000 children under the age of fifteen passed through the Terezin Concentration Camp between the years 1942-1944; less than 100 survived. In these poems and pictures drawn by the young inmates of Terezin, we see the daily misery of these uprooted children, as well as their courage and optimism, their hopes and fears."This is the type of book which is great to peruse once, but then it may too powerful to read again.
Just having on the bookshelf is enough after that. A simple glance at the title on the binder is sufficient to become reflective.
