In July 1942, Gita Hojtasova (10 years old), Zuzana Hojtasova (7 years old), and their mother Gertrude were deported from their native Prague to the Terezin concentration camp/ghetto. They were liberated in 1945.
Several artworks Zuzana made in Terezin show the complicated childhood that she endured there. But throughout her work, her abiding love for her mother is clear.
A few examples of art Zuzana made her mother while they were interned at Terezin are shown below.
Below is a cardboard heart Zuzana made for her mother.
