Vedem: The Underground Magazine Of The Terezin Ghetto
During World War II, a group of teenage Jewish boys authored the longest-running underground magazine to be regularly produced by Nazi concentration camp prisoners. Vedem (Czech for “In the Lead”) was created in secret from 1942-44 in Czechoslovakia’s Terezin Ghetto. This exhibit recreates the prose, poetry, illustrations and pop art graphics from the 83 weekly issues. Reproductions of the original content are reimagined as a contemporary magazine, as a work of rebellion and social commentary, still relevant today.
