When Judis Baehr, a young orphan, was deported to Theresienstadt in 1943, she was left behind when the prisoners disembarked the train. Judis was taken in by a young couple, who were able to secure her a pair of boots. Judis survived and donated the boots to our Museum in 2002.

What a stroke of luck or divine provenance or whatever you want to call it. One lucky little girl. Hope you had a good life.

So good to read a story from this era that has a pleasant ending.

It would have to be a wonderful ending, to try to block out an absolutly hideous start.

Y’all on how fascinating the story is but I’m stuck on pronouncing “Theresienstadt”
