Auschwitz - Birkenau The Family Camp
Life in the Theresienstadt ghetto went on while at the same time train "transports" were leaving at least once a week. These trains took Jews from the ghetto to their deaths in Latvia, Estonia, and the camps in Poland. We will sum up all the activities with one of the unique phenomena of Theresienstadt Jewry, the "family camp" in the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, set up especially for the Jews of Theresienstadt. The family camp was the final illusion for many of Theresienstadt's Jewish residents, a trap ending in their death.
Yad Vashem What did the people imagine when they spoke about the East? A different type of Theresienstadt, but on foreign soil, with conditions that were a lot more difficult, in some far- off Russian or Polish land. A place with snow, frost, starvation, and back breaking labor, and with no connection to home Yad Vashem
