Voices of Terezin: Art as a Strategy for Survival

The Center has partnered up with organizations and schools all over campus in an effort to remember survivors of a prison camp from World War II in a city northwest of Prague called Terezin.

The camp, during the course of the war held about 100,000 people, a large number of which were artists and musicians.

We'll be featuring the film Fighter as part of the program but not until April 7th. In the meantime, check out some of the other amazing events leading up to a play March 19-21 at the Katzen Arts Center. For more information please visit: www.american.edu/cla/terezin.

Not included below but relevant to the Terezin project, the Goethe Institute and the JCC of Greater Baltimore are premiering a new film about Hilda Stern Cohen, For Tomorrow ( Ich hoff' auf morgen) by Eve Rennebarth, Gail Rosen, and William Gilcher.
