Listen to Triad Arts as broadcast at 8:35 AM and 5:44 PM.

Petr Ginz was a boy genius. He grew up in Prague in the 1930s. Before his 15th birthday he had already written and illustrated five novels, taught himself new languages, and established a periodical magazine.    

Still as a child Petr immersed himself in sociology, literature, painting, geography and various technical fields as well. Sadly, many of these pursuits took place in the Terezin concentration camp. Petr was eventually assigned to one of the last trains to Auschwitz where he died in the gas chambers in 1944.
