Art, Music, and Writings from the Holocaust
This book shows that even brutal treatment by the Nazis and the ever-present threat of death were unable to destroy the creative impulses of the people trapped in the ghettos and concentration camps. Poetry, diary entries, song lyrics, drawings, and paintings from the time express the full range of emotions, including the craving for normality in the very abnormal situations.
