The Power of Music: A Jewish Rebellion
WHEN: Wednesday, June 24, 9:30 a.m. ET
After the Nazis deported 476 Jews from Denmark, the Danish government pressured Germany to allow the Red Cross to inspect the Theresienstadt camp, where the Danes had been sent.
The Nazis created an elaborate hoax to give the impression that the Jews living there were thriving. So the prisoners made the bold decision to sing what they could not say when the Nazis forced them to perform for the Red Cross delegation.
