    DEFIANT REQUIEM tells the little-known story of the Nazi concentration camp, Terezin. Led by imprisoned conductor Rafael Schächter, the inmates of Terezin fought back...with art and music. Through hunger, disease and slave labor, the Jewish inmates of Terezin hold onto their humanity by staging plays, composing opera and using paper and ink to record the horrors around them.

    This creative rebellion reaches its peak when Schächter teaches a choir of 150 inmates one of the world's most difficult and powerful choral works, Verdi's Requiem, re-imagined as a condemnation of the Nazis. The choir would ultimately confront the Nazis face to face... and sing to them what they dare not say.

    For over ten years, conductor Murry Sidlin has dreamed of bringing the Requiem back to Terezin. Now, through soaring concert footage, powerful survivor recollections, cinematic dramatizations and evocative animation, DEFIANT REQUIEM brings the incredible story of this artistic uprising to life.

    Thank you Stefan. I saw the trailer some time ago but didn't get around to watching it until just now. A fine production, well worth watching. Apart from the geographical error - Terezín is north of Prague, not west as stated, they have done an excellent job producing a work that tells the remarkable story of not only the strength that inmates of the ghetto-camp garnered from their art, but something of the history of the site itself. The images below were taken several years ago. They show some of the exhibition dedicated to the survival of art and culture in Theresienstadt. Of note is the secret Jewish prayer room - shown in the film, and costumes used in some of the productions that were presented by the inmates.
