The Camp at Terezín

2 segments

During World War II, the transition camp at Terezín was a vital, creative haven for Jewish artists of all kinds. At least, that’s the story the Nazis told to the world. The reality was far darker. On this special edition of Soundcheck, we hear a survivor’s memories of the so-called “art camp” – which really did produce some enduring music and art. And The Nash Ensemble from England will play some of the music created in the camp at Terezín.
