Terezin

The True Adventures of Gidon Lev is more than an inspirational story about hope, and more than book about the Holocaust. Indeed, Gidon's life has been much more than simply being a Holocaust survivor. With rising anti-Semitism in the world today, The True Adventures shines an important light on one of the least known concentration camps, Terezin, which in many ways bears a troubling resemblance to current events in the world.  You may know the most infamous, notorious and cruel death camps by name: Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Sobibor, Dachau, Bergen-Belsen. But Terezin (or Theresienstadt) was not a "death camp".  Terezin, you see, was a "model" camp, a "fake news" camp, used for propaganda purposes.
