František Tichý / Transport Beyond Eternity

His father just arrested by the Gestapo, twelve-year-old Jenda cannot guess what awaits him and his friends: expulsion from high school, yellow stars sown onto jackets, deportation to Terezín... This book by Frantíšek Tichý is inspired by real events and the stories of boys who lived both in Prague and the Terezín concentration camp. While never renouncing adventure and fantasy, the story remains so truthful it makes one shudder...

How does one discuss the fates of war-time Jews with young people without engulfing them in the limitless darkness that is Shoah, and without airbrushing the truth so as not to sadden young souls with too frank a description of the horrors the victims endured?
