Voices from Theresienstadt (Terezin)

JCC of Greater Washington

Dates: Every Wednesday, May 23, 2012 - June 13, 2012
Time: 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm
Speaker: Cantor Abraham Lubin

Hazzan Lubin most recently served as the hazzan for Congregation Beth El in Bethesda, Maryland.

Terezin, a town located in what is now the Czech Republic, was called Theresienstadt by the Nazis. It was the propaganda “show camp” to the outside world and was portrayed as a camp where artists, writers, and musicians were “well” treated. Composers and performers produced outstanding musical riches under tragic and inhumane conditions. This course will present examples of musical works created in the camp between 1941 and 1945. Rare film footage of life in the camp, produced in 1944 by the Nazis, will be shown.

This course is dedicated to the memory of all the musicians who were later transported to Auschwitz where they perished.
