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. ” - Publishers description.
