Defiant Requiem: Voices of Resistance

Defiant Requiem: Voices of Resistance

Special | 1h 26m 46s

In the face of horrific living conditions, starvation and the threat of deportation to Auschwitz, the Jewish inmates of Terezin concentration camp — artists, musicians, poets and writers — fought back … with art and music. Led by conductor Raphael Schachter, they re-imagined a Catholic liturgical work, Verdi’s Requiem, as a condemnation of the Nazis.
