Terezin Remembered

Terezin Remembered is a collection of cultural events commemorating the 65th anniversary of a story of the inextinguishable human spirit. Click here for a complete list of events. Included in this compendium are an art exhibit of works created by those incarcerated, a lecture, a chamber music concert consisting of works composed in the camp, and our Masterworks Series finale: a performance of Verdi's Requiem (plus a pre-concert symposium with survivors of the concentration camp). The only way to get your hands on a ticket to this concert is by contacting The Essex Resort and Spa about their special concert package. Call (800) 727-4295 and ask for the Terezin Remembered Package. You may also choose to attend the open rehearsal on the afternoon of May 1. Tickets are available through FlynnTix. Below is a video interview with Susi Learmonth, a member of the Upper Valley Friends of the VSO, whose family was interned at Terezin.
