Terezín Memorial Books

The aim of the edition of Terezín Memorial Books is to record names and fates of all Terezín prisoners and to keep the memory of meaninglessly wasted human lives. Publishing of the memorial books has become possible thanks the database where data for more than 150 thousand Terezín prisoners are being collected. Entries for tens of thousand deported Jews document the extent and perversity of the final solution of the Jewish question and stand for a symbolical gravestone of people whose only guilt was their Jewish origin.
