The Story of Terezín

Jan 18, 2012

Explore the extraordinary history of Terezín, a temporary holding camp set up in 1941 by Eichmann. Though isolated and deprived, Terezín became a productive and vibrant community which generated remarkable works of art and music.

Many imprisoned there were notable composers, musicians and actors whose dire circumstances only strengthened their will to create. Through documentary film clips and stories from survivors of Terezín itself, delve into one of the most moving and inspiring stories of the Holocaust era—not only its artistic output but the work and play, romance, routines and family life that made up the lives of its citizens, lives overshadowed by the always-present threat of transport to Auschwitz.
