Event description

Description

Resistance and defiance were often hidden in the artistic work of Jewish musicians imprisoned in Terezín, the Nazi ghetto/camp in Czechoslovakia. Hear compelling stories about this form of resistance from Dr. Laurence Sherr, an internationally recognized Holocaust music lecturer, composer, and educator. Dr. Sherr’s presentation will include eyewitness video clips, archival materials, and his onsite photo documentation. This event is produced in conjunction with our exhibition Vedem Underground: The Secret Magazine of Terezin, on view until March 10th.

Program Schedule: Lecture followed by Q and A

Price: Free for Members, $12 Non-Members*
