This is a tribute to Friedl Dicker-Brandeis' art of Vienna in 1920s, and her teaching methods to Czech children sent to Terezin Concentration Camp north of Prague during WWII. This elegant, well-documented collection does several things of great importance. First, it traces the career of one of the Bauhaus' first students, providing insights into a legendary school. Second, it shows in moving detail how Friedl Dicker-Brandeis continued to create beautiful objects and to teach young people in horrifying circumstances. Dicker-Brandeis' story is one of quietly defiant creativity in the face of appalling destruction.
