A documentary that highlights one of the most dramatic examples of intellectual and artistic courage in the Terezín Ghetto.

Screening of The Defiant Requiem, a documentary that highlights one of the most dramatic examples of intellectual and artistic courage in the Terezín Ghetto: the staging of the Verdi Requiem as an humanistic assertion of the value of Jewish life and a protest against Nazi inhumanity. The documentary will be framed by contextual marks by Associate Professor of Music Amy Wlodarski and followed two student reflections on the documentary by Amy Isaacson ’18 and Carolyn Goode ’18. In commemoration of those whose lives were extinguished during the Holocaust, Rabbi Ilyse Kramer will offer readings and a moment of silence. Reception to follow in the Weiss Lobby.
