Paula Rehtz starts her memoirs with a description of how the Nazis took all her belongings and how she gave the rest to her family members and friends, before she was deportet to Theresienstadt on July 18, 1942. Then she briefly describes the journey. From here on she talks about the everyday life in the camp, including her work in a joinery, food, punishment, cultural events. She stresses three events, which will stay in her memory forever: the delousing, the population census, and the destruction of the urns in order to suppress the number of the dead. Finally she states that it was her religious belief, which helped her survive.
