About This Project


The boys made every effort to create a “real” magazine, even jokingly adding a price on the cover. The material included poetry, adventure tales, essays, literary reviews and news stories. There were also recurring columns, as well as popular features such as the “Quote of the Week,”chosen from among silly things the boys said, like “I am afraid to speak. I might say something stupid.” and “Soccer is the best game, right after Monopoly.” The articles described life in Terezín, and often recalled the boys’ prior lives in their hometowns. Some poems were about specific events the boys witnessed—people dying, families being separated—while others expressed the boys’ fears, outrage, hopes and dreams.
