“A book that is so much more than a book, that one might describe it as a monument, a headstone, an exhibition, an archive, a living flame. . . . A reminder of extraordinary creativity on every level. . . . An incredible accomplishment. . . . An indispensable book for anyone interested in twentieth-century music, the Holocaust or Jewish Studies.” -- Michael Haas, Forbidden Music
"To know the Holocaust in great detail is one thing. But to hear and feel it from the souls of those who were in the midst of it becomes a singular revelation in th[is] monumental new book. . . . exhilarating in life-affirming ways." — David Stearns, The Philadelphia Inquirer
“Takes readers into the world of Terezín’s silenced artists and makes their voices come alive. A testimony to the inextinguishable strength of the human spirit. There are moments of excruciating beauty, there are heartrending stories, all reminding us that if we lose our humanity, we are nothing.” Yo-Yo Ma
