AMARILLO READS: Vedem: the Underground Magazine of the Terezin Ghetto

Our AMARILLO READS study of Elie Wiesel begins with this exhibit honoring the underground magazine, Vedem.   Between 1942 and 1944, a group of Jewish boys risked their lives by creating Vedem’s 83 issues that documented the defiance, heartbreak, hard-won victories, and satire that typified teenage life inside the walls of the Czechoslovakia’s Terezin Ghetto. Vedem served as a form of protest and rebellion by some of the youngest resistance fighters of the World War II era.  The exhibit will be up through February.
