The heart of this book is a compilation of remembered recipes written down by malnourished women in Terezin, a Nazi concentration camp in Czechoslovakia. The women of Terezin recorded their recipes as a way to maintain their humanity and bring them comfort in the face of almost certain death. In stark contrast to the meager food they were eating in the camp, the recipes in these pages record the rich and robust tradition of Czech Jewish life.

This book should be in EVERY home in America! I actually saw photographs of people being saved in a concentration camp during WWII. They believed it was a "hoax" by the nazis. They finally believed when Hershey Chocolate bars were being handed out by the American Soldiers.Their skeleton bodies with skin taunt were so weak,they became ill trying to taste a treasure,Chocolate. All because they were/are Jewish.We should NEVER FORGET.This is a profound realisation of what CAN/DID occur. Heaven Bless those who did not survive. Heaven bless those that are still with us.
