The Defiant Requiem tells the story of a most dramatic example of intellectual and artistic courage in the Theresienstadt concentration camp. The inmates fought back...with art and music. Despite hunger, disease and slave labor, the Jewish inmates of Terezin held onto their humanity by staging plays, composing opera and using paper and ink to record the horrors around them.
Maestro Murry Sidlin, international conductor, president and creative director of The Defiant Requiem Foundation will speak about the arts and humanities as practiced by the prisoners in the Theresienstadt (Terezin) Concentration Camp.
