Note: 
Based on her mother’s experiences, Monique Polak presents an emotionally honest and gripping account of a young girl’s experiences as a prisoner in Theresienstadt. She expertly integrates historical facts, figures, and events such as the Painters’ Affair, the Embellishment, the opera Brundibar, the filmmaker Kurt Geron, and Rabbi Leo Baeck, and includes an author’s note, bibliography, and list of websites. It should be noted that Anneke, the protagonist, is sexually assaulted by a Nazi officer and has a brief romance with an older man.
