FC: Terezin | By: Alyssa, Bethany, and Lindsey

1: "We got used to standing in line at 7 o'clock in the morning, at 12 noon and again at 7 0'clock in the evening. We stood in a long queue with a plate in our hand, into which they ladled a little warmed-up water with salty or a coffee flavor. Or else they gave us a few potatoes. We got used to sleeping without a bed, to saluting every uniform, not to walk on the sidewalks and then again to walk on the sidewalks. We got used to undeserved slaps, blows and executions. We got accustomed to seeing people die in their own excrement, to seeing piled-up coffins ful of corpses, to seeing the sick amidst dirt and filth and to seeing the helpless doctors. We got used to it that from time to time, one thousand unhappy souls would come here and that, from time to time, another thousand unhappy souls would go away. " -Petr Fischl: Age 15


3: Viewer Discretion is Advised!

5: The children slept either on concrete floors or three-tiered bunks. From the age of 14 the children had to work in Terezin. The younger children acted as children, but they didn't know that they too was being used to convince foreigners from the Red Cross that Terezin was a place where adults and children could live. The Red Cross was allowed to go into Terezin once. The soldiers dressed up certain children from Terezin and staged them to stand at certain places. They filled shop windows and bakery windows with goods to make it look like a nice place.

6: Transports came and went continually. From every 15,000 children that went away, only 100 came back. Those children saw everything the adults saw. The people waiting in lines to fill canteens and the funeral carts used to carry bread, and people harnessed to pull them. They also saw the executions.

7: The children also saw things the adults wasn't allowed to see. They saw the valleys and meadows beyond the village gates. They also saw things in their minds from home and painted these things to make the place a happier place to live.

8: Thousands of the children died of malnutrition. Those children were cremated in the crematorium made up of four small ovens.

11: Children in Terezin.
