This is not an ordinary book: it's a BookCrossing book! BookCrossing books are world travelers - they like to have adventures and make new friends...and every once in a while they even write home to say what they've been doing.

☻ ☻ ☻


This book is from the library of Purple58, a very special woman whom I was fortunate enough to meet through our BookCrossing group, the Table of Contents.

Fiercely independent, with a loving heart and a wicked sense of humor, she was passionate about the things she believed in and was willing to stand up and be counted when necessary. She was truly a one of a kind individual, and she will be missed by all of her many friends...who prefer to believe that she's off in Vegas, having a fabulous time and eating as many desserts as she wants.

This book is released in memory of BookCrosser purple58, who wanted all of her books to find good homes after she was gone. Please feel free to read it, keep it, pass it on...whatever you wish. If you have something to say about the book, or a memory to share about Holly, please feel free to post it here: she was never shy about sharing her opinions, so she wouldn't expect any less.

This book came home from purple58's wonderful send-off with me. I think Holly would have loved her final party and I'm glad I was able to be a part of it. (The word cloud in the journal entry was generated from descriptions of Holly by her friends.)

This book will be heading out soon in honor of an exceptional woman who was undoubtedly chuckling as she planned how she would have us celebrate her life. :)

I received this book in the mail from hyphen8 of Honolulu, Hawaii as a birthday surprise. I have read about this camp and the woman who taught art to children at that camp. It will be interesting to read more about it.

Thank you for mailing this book to me, hyphen8. It is wonderful that you are releasing books in your friend's memory.

Journal Entry 6 by wingtabby-cat-ownerwing at Phoenix, Arizona USA on Wednesday, February 13, 2019
I have always been drawn to reading about the Holocaust. This book is different in that it focuses on one concentration camp and tells the story of that concentration camp. The concentration camp is Terezin in the Czech Republic which was the model concentration camp that was created by the Nazis to be a foil, to show the world that the Jews are being treated well in the concentration camps. Meanwhile, the Jews in Terezin are being executed right there at the site and shipped off to other concentration camps to be terminated. Reading about a concentration camp and being presented with the plans created and carried out by the Nazis is more chilling that reading a typical book about the Holocaust that gives the reader the perspective of the individual struggling to survive in a concentration camp. I had read a book previously about the children of Terezin and their art and the woman who taught them art, but in this book the main artists are presented and their courageous depictions of life at Terezin for which they were severely punished. Only one of the artists survived. The art was smuggled out of the concentration camp and hid within the concentration camp to bear testimony to the unthinkable crimes against humanity that were committed there.
