Detailed Information for Seller's item number: 102258
In Memory's Kitchen : a legacy from the women of Terezin / edited by Cara DeSilva
Author: DeSilva, Cara, ed.
Publisher: Northvale, N.J. : Jason Aronson, c1996

xliii, 110 p. : illus. ; 22 cm. Translation by Bianca Steiner Brown ; foreword by Michael Berenbaum. "The sheets of paper are as brittle as fallen leaves; the faltering handwriting changes from page to page; the words, a faded brown, are almost indecipherable. The page are filled with recipes. Each is a memory, a fantasy, a hope for the future. Written by undernourished and starving women in the Czechoslovakian ghetto/concentration camp of Terezin (also known as Theresienstadt), the recipes give instructions for making beloved dishes in the rich, robust Czech tradition. Sometimes steps or ingredients are missing, the gaps a painful illustration of the condition and situation in which the authors lived. Reprinting the contents of the original hand-sewn copybook, In Memory's Kitchen: A Legacy from the Women of Terezin is a beautiful memorial to the brave women who defied Hitler by preserving a part of their heritage and a part of themselves. Despite the harsh conditions in the Nazis' "model" ghetto-which in reality was a way station to Auschwitz and other death camps-cultural, intellectual, and artistic life did exist within the walls of the ghetto. Like the heart-breaking book...I never saw another butterfly...which contains the poetry and drawings of the children of Terezin, the handwritten cookbook is proof that the Nazis could not break the spirit of the Jewish people. " Bibliography (p.109-110). Stock# 102,258. Vg / dj vg.
