Description

Over 15,000 Jewish children passed through Terezin, and only about 100 were still alive when it was liberated at the end of the war. One of the survivors, Raja, began teaching them, helping to give them hope, creating a little world of laughter, flowers and butterflies behind the barbed wire.

There were no butterflies at Terezin, of course, but for the children, it became a symbol of defiance. I Never Saw Another Butterfly shares the true story of their hopes, their fears and the beauty of these children through the artwork and poetry they left behind.
