During WWII, the Gestapo used Terezín, better known by the German name Theresienstadt, as a ghetto, concentrating Jews from Czechoslovakia, as well as many from Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, and Denmark. More than 150,000 Jews were sent there, and although it was not an extermination camp about 33,000 died in the ghetto itself,mostly because of the appalling conditions arising out of extreme population density. About 88,000 inhabitants were deported to Auschwitz and other extermination camps [3][4] At the end of the war there were 17,247 survivors.

    Pilar Coll i Gatells said (8 Aug 2011):

    Al fin de la batalla
    y muerto el combatiente, vino hacia él un hombre
    y le dijo: «¡No mueras, te amo tanto!»
    Pero el cadáver ¡ay! siguió muriendo.
    Se le acercaron dos y repitiéronle:
    « ¡No nos dejes! ¡Valor! ¡Vuelve a la vida!»
    Pero el cadáver ¡ay! siguió muriendo.
    Acudieron a él veinte, cien, mil, quinientos mil
    clamando: « ¡Tanto amor, y no poder nada contra la muerte!»
    Pero el cadáver ¡ay! siguió muriendo.
    Le rodearon millones de individuos
    con un ruego común: « ¡Quédate hermano!»
    Pero el cadáver ¡ay! siguió muriendo.
    Entonces, todos los hombres de la tierra
    le rodearon; les vió el cadáver triste, emocionado;
    incorporóse lentamente,
    abrazó al primer hombre; echóse a andar…by César Abraham Vallejo Mendoza (Santiago de Chuco, Perú, 16 de marzo de 1892 - París, 15 de abril de 1938)
