The Foyer to Hell

A book to keep the memory alive
In 1942, David Rosen is separated from his mother and taken to Theresienstadt, the "display model" of concentration camps, where the Jews have their own administration, their own hospitals and their own so-called "social centres". The Jews therefore call it "foyer to hell". From there, the transports bring people directly to the extermination camps. It does not take long before David realizes that the same brutal situation of terror, anxiety and hunger prevails behind this artificially built-up facade as anywhere else, and he has only one aim: survive this nightmare. He shows adaptiveness, behaves as unobtrusively as possible and does his work. He finds friends and people who help him, thus maintaining his belief in humanity. He meets Vera, and it is with her that he leaves the camp after its liberation in 1945.

In a precise yet moving description, Carlo Ross shows everyday life in Theresienstadt - underlined by a conciliatory tone and deep humanity. "The Foyer to Hell" is a sequel to "... But Stones Cannot Speak", with which Ross gives an account of his childhood.
288 pages, Age 14 and up, ISBN 978-3-423-78055-1
