Summer 1942 marked the beginning of mass deportations of Jews from French soil to Auschwitz-Birkenau. For the first time, women and children were arrested in large numbers. By the end of July, the need to fill quotas led the authorities to deport parents from the internment camps without their children. Left alone to fend for themselves for a few more weeks, the children were ultimately deported as well.

Beginning in late 1940, over three thousand Jewish girls and young women were forced from their family homes in Sosnowiec, Poland and its surrounding towns to worksites in Germany. Believing that they were helping their families to survive, these young people were thrust into a world where they labored at textile work for twelve hours a day, lived in barracks with little food, and received only periodic news of events back home. By late 1943, their barracks had been transformed into concentration camps, where they were held until liberation in 1945.

Echoes & Reflections Course - Defiant Requiem: Cultural Resistance in the Terezín Ghetto, July 2024 All Day (15 days)
Workshops
Starts Jul 15, 2024
Ends Jul 29, 2024
In this dynamic online course, offered in partnership between Echoes & Reflections and The Defiant Requiem Foundation, educators will explore how Jews continued to live creative and artistic lives against the backdrop of the Holocaust. By exploring the experience of Jews forcibly interned in the Terezin/Theresienstadt ghetto, participants will learn how these individuals used music, art, and other forms of creative expression as cultural and spiritual resistance in defiance of the Nazis who sought to dehumanize them. How did the Jews resist oppression in the Terezin ghetto? What can we learn from their perseverance under these circumstances? In this asynchronous online course, educators examine the creation of the Terezin ghetto, the role of resistance, and how the prisoner performances of Verdi's Requiem inspired individuals then and now. This facilitator-led course also includes an exploration of Echoes & Reflections and The Defiant Requiem Foundation's resources that support your teaching strategies and enhance understanding for your students.

After Nazi Germany invaded and occupied Hungary in 1944, authorities forced 13-year-old Irene Fogel Weiss and her family to leave their home and live in a crowded ghetto under horrible conditions. Just weeks later, the family found themselves packed in a freight car bound for Auschwitz. When they arrived at the camp, Irene clung to her little sister’s hand—until a Nazi official broke them apart with a baton. Irene froze in terror as her sister disappeared into the crowd. Watch to learn what happened next.
