Shoes in Terezin

Two pair of shoes in small room at 17 Dlouha Street in Terezin. Owners: Artur Berlinger and his wife.  He was a man of many talents. He worked as a musician, music teacher, painter, calligrapher and artisan.  In 1942 Artur and his wife were deported to the Jewish Ghetto in Terezin. During 1943 Berlinger happened upon the empty attic space with the vaulted ceiling at 17 Dlouhá Street. Determined to help other inmates celebrate their Jewish faith, he transformed it into a prayer room and probably using his own liturgical items during the services he led.
