Music and the Holocaust part 2

Music in Terezin

PLAYLIST
From 1942 to 1945, the concentration camp of Theresienstadt (Terezin) had an intense musical activity, encouraged by the Nazis for propaganda.

At the end of year 1941, the nazis gathered in the ghetto camp Terezin (about 50 km Nort-West of Prague) many Jewish intellectuals and artists who continued their creative activities. Most of these composers (Viktor Ullmann, Hans Krása, Pavel Haas...) will die of hunger or in gas chambers, leaving behind them works of terrifying modernity, that musicological research of the past 20 years allowed to live again.
