item details

In 1941, Petr Ginz was a young teenager living in Prague with his parents and sister. Adventurous, artistic and optimistic, he wrote poems and novels and edited a children's magazine inside the work camp at Theresienstadt. Originally written in his own special code-language, Petr's diaries describe daily life for the Ginz family and document the introduction of anti-Jewish laws from a young adult's point of view - pithy and unsentimental. The writing stopped in 1942 when Petr received his summons, but the books survived in a Prague attic. They recently came to light in extraordinary circumstances and were published in the Czech Republic in 2005 to a storm of publicity.

A classic in its own right - really deserves a worldwide audience. The publishers really don't need to mention Anne Frank and compare it to that - this is a maserpiece in its own right.

At last, a chance to see this book before you buy. The low quality scans below will give you a flavour of the book. The book itself is a 100 times better. Just look at a few of the photos scanned below to see what I mean.

The book is available from and can be found from their home page.


All images are now 'tagged', ie: a jpeg code [or invisible electronic watermarking] is installed in the image or deliberate 'flow coding' is added to some text. Regular searches are made for the tags, by a third party, automated Bot. Note that even copied, resized, images still carry the tag and even re-written text will transfer the tag when you upload.
