During WW II, a young girl in the Terezin concentration camp in Czechoslovakia was drawing pictures of what she saw around her. At the same time -- and halfway around the world -- a young Japanese American woman was drawing pictures of what she saw as an internment-camp prisoner in California. Worlds, ages, and lives apart, these two people were using their artistry to document what they saw, fulfilling their need to draw and create. Never has the act of creating been more poignant than when it is done during times of duress, such as in camps or prisons, during drought or poverty, or while battling mental illness. The book is filled with full-color reproductions of artwork, including some never before published. A Junior Library Guild Selection.
