The Memory of the Children from TheresienstadtThe workshop explores the history and unique nature of the Theresienstadt ghetto, with special emphasis on the children there.
Participants use art works by prisoners to explore selected aspects of life in the ghetto, including the architecture of Terezin, everyday living conditions, transports, art work by children, the Brundibar children’s opera, and creative writing by the children.
Working in groups, participants read accounts by prisoners in the ghetto, share their reactions and reflections, and attempt to answer questions about the fate of the children in the Theresienstadt ghetto.
