Duration   30m

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. Jewish prisoners whom the Nazis forced to perform for the Red Cross delegation made the bold decision to sing what they could not say. Join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and conductor Murry Sidlin to learn about the Theresienstadt camp musical rebellion and efforts to honor these courageous artists.

Murry Sidlin, President and Artistic Director, The Defiant Requiem Foundation

Dr. Lisa Leff, Director, Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
