‘Vedem Underground’ at the Bremen Museum
In 1942, a secret group of teenage boys produced an underground magazine while imprisoned inside the walls of the Terezin Ghetto, a Czechoslovakian show camp designed by the Nazis to hide their plans of mass extermination.
Living in what was previously a classroom, the boys found a typewriter and started documenting the daily life and struggles inside the 18th-century walled fortress about 40 miles north of Prague. The publication also revealed the inner thoughts of teenagers through poetry, illustrations, even jokes.
The title of the magazine is at the top in black ink and large — Vedem, which means “in the lead” in Czech.
A powerful new exhibit exploring the magazine, titled “Vedem Underground: The Secret Magazine of the Terezin Ghetto (1942-1944),” opened recently at the Breman Museum in Atlanta. Recommended for visitors at least 10 years old.
Through March 10. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday. $4-$12; free for children under 3 and members. Breman Museum, 1440 Spring St. NW, Atlanta. 678-222-3700, thebreman.org.
