The Power of Music: A Jewish Rebellion
Live Digital Program

We hope you can join us for our live event to learn about the musical rebellion staged by Jewish prisoners in the Theresienstadt camp—the performance of Verdi’s Requiem during the visit of the Red Cross to the camp in 1944.

The recording is available on demand on the Museum’s Facebook page.
