The Legacy of Theresienstadt

The Legacy of Theresienstadt

May 30,   7:00 pm
at Congregation Beth Israel, 229 Murdock Ave.

Barbara Weitz will discuss and show you what has survived from that gruesome place of death– great music, writing, and art were composed and performed by those condemned  However, the most precious legacy of Theresienstadt is the collection of children’s paintings—artwork which, beyond its own intrinsic value—is testimony to the courage of the children and their teachers, who continued to live, to teach, to paint, to learn, and to hope, despite the constant fear of violent death, a fear based on a realistic assessment of the situation in which they found themselves.
