In the picture: The Jewish-Czech poet and composer Ilse Weber, author of numerous poems and songs for Jewish children. Deported in February 1942 in the concentration camp of Theresienstadt with her husband and her younger son, he worked there as a nurse for the captive children, but without the availability of medicines, forbidden to the Jews. When her husband was transferred to Auschwitz in October 1944, Ilse chose to follow him voluntarily with his son Tommy, and here he was killed in the gas chambers together with the child upon their arrival.
