'The Music Man of Terezin: The Story of Rafael Schaechter as Remembered by Edgar Krasa'

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Terezin and Auschwitz survivor Edgar Krasa of Newton will speak about singing in composer and pianist Rafael Schaechter's production of the Verdi Requiem at the Terezin concentration camp on June 23, 1944, before Nazi officials and Red Cross representatives. It was a risky, secretly defiant act, as the Requiem warns of Judgment Day for one's sins.
