8. In Memory's Kitchen: A Legacy from the Women of Terezin

By Cara De Silva. This book is not, per say, a cookbook in the way that we expect it to be. In fact, the "recipes" within were written from memory by women interred in the Terezin concentration camp. More a historical document than a cookbook, this book nonetheless offers evidence about the importance of recording and passing on traditional recipes in Czech culture.
