The cafe was part of the "beautification" of the Terezin Ghetto in an effort to hide conditions during the visit of the Red Cross Commission in 1944.

Czech artist Leo Haas was deported to Terezin in 1942, where he secretly created hundreds of sketches. After the war, he produced more complex works based on his earlier art and Ghetto experiences.
