Vedem: the Underground Magazine for the Terezin Ghetto


The temporary panel exhibit “Vedem: the Underground Magazine for the Terezin Ghetto” will be on display at Hillel at Texas A&M until April 25, 2018.

This is an art exhibit that deconstructs and reinterprets the literary work of the teenage Jewish creators of the longest-running underground magazine in a Nazi camp. Using a combination of pop-art graphics, archival photographs and cartoons, and the prose and poetry of teenage boy prisoners in Czechoslovakia’s Terezin Ghetto, VEDEM: THE UNDERGROUND MAGAZINE OF THE TEREZIN GHETTO breaks down the 83 weekly issues totaling the 800 pages of Vedem (“In The Lead” in Czech), then reconstructs them in the form of a contemporary magazine.

The exhibit features more than 200 linear feet of cartoons, illustrations, and editorial reproductions of the magazine’s content.
