Between 1941 and 1945, the Nazi authorities turned the small town of Terezin, Czechoslovakia, into a ghetto and then into a transit camp for thousands of Jewish people, many of them artists. It was a "show" camp, where inmates were forced to use their artistic talents to fool the world, hiding the truth of gas chambers and horrific living conditions for imprisoned Jews.
