Last Friday my Czech culture class greeted Mrs. Vidláková, a Jewish woman who came to tell us about her childhood in the Terezín ghetto and concentration camp. In 1942, her family was moved to Terezín in northern Czechoslovakia. This post is somewhat grim, but hang with me. Mrs. Vidláková found her silver lining, so maybe we all should, too.
