Despite the difficult conditions in the Bergen-Belsen camp, Eliezer Dasberg managed to teach his daughter Dina using drawings that he made in a small accounting notepad. The Bible stories that he sketched include Jacob's Dream, the Creation and Noah's Ark.
Berta and Eliezer Dasberg were deported from Holland with their three children, Shmuel, Shimon and Dina to the Bergen-Belsen camp. Eliezer, who was responsible for the work rotation of his fellow prisoners, had access to writing materials, and he found a little time each week to sit with his young daughter and teach her Bible stories. Dina's mother practiced reading and writing with her. The family survived.
