Photographer's Note

Theresienstadt outside Prag is still there as a reminder of the world war II holocaust. This is cuts from some webpages at Internet:

“During the war small bits of information about the extreme and horrific episodes perpetrated under the Third Reich reached an unbelieving world. The Nazis needed to answer the world's growing concern and yet they wanted to continue implementing their "solution" to the Jewish Question. The Nazis decided to use Theresienstadt to solve the growing outside pressure. Through deceit and subterfuge, the Nazis transformed Theresienstadt into a "model ghetto."

“Located in Czechoslovakia, Theresienstadt was not a death camp; the Nazis did not exterminate Jews at Theresienstadt. The camp mainly served as a stopping point for Jews enroute to Nazi death camps further east. As in other concentration camps, conditions in Theresienstadt were terrible. Overcrowding and malnutrition killed thousands of prisoners and disease killed thousands more. Only one in eight new arrivals survived.”

Even more sad is the fact that the story continues, as on Balkan and some African countries not so long ago - and what will be the next?

Tech: Scanned slides, colour adjustment, run in Neat Image. The blur is a bit overdone as it for me was ok for this pix.
