In the early years of Yad Vashem’s existence a copy of a Jewish calendar for 5704 (1943-44) from Theresienstadt was received into the collection. The pocket-sized calendar was created using a blueprint technique that enabled copies to be made. Additional copies of this calendar are in the Yad Vashem Archives. The calendar is written in German and Hebrew and includes the times of the onset of the Sabbath, the holidays and the calculated times of sunrise and sunset throughout the year. The creation of such an item is a complicated enterprise that requires extensive knowledge, so it is reasonable to assume that a number of individuals cooperated in its creation.
