Requiem

By Paul B. Janeczko
Illustrated by Various

“Moving and brutal, a poetic remembrance of a tragedy too vast to forget.” — Kirkus Reviews

Acclaimed poet Paul B. Janeczko gives voice to the indomitable creative community of the Czech concentration camp of Terezín (Theresienstadt), emphasizing its dignity, resilience, and commitment to art and music in the face of great brutality. Accented with dramatic illustrations by prisoners, found after World War II, Janeczko’s spare and powerful poems convey Terezín’s tragic legacy on an intimate, profoundly moving scale.

  • Now in paperback, the second collection of original poems by the author of the highly acclaimed Worlds Afire.
  • A powerful story set in a WWII concentration camp.
  • A moving testament to the dignity and humanity of Terezin s inmates.
