Duration   1h

The Yom HaShoah commemoration will feature a viewing of the documentary film, Defiant Requiem, followed by a discussion with Maestro Murry Sidlin, the President and Creative Director of the Foundation.

Defiant Requiem is a feature-length documentary film that tells the extraordinary, untold story of the brave acts of resistance by Jewish prisoners at Theresienstadt (Terezín) during World War II. The film highlights a dramatic example of intellectual and artistic courage: the remarkable story of Rafael Schächter, a brilliant young Czech conductor who demonstrated moral leadership under brutal circumstances by sustaining hope and courage for his fellow prisoners by creating a prisoner choir and “singing to the Nazis what they dared not say.” This is a film about how a rare form of courage sparked a compelling determination to survive by answering the worst of mankind with the best of mankind.
