Signs of Life—A Holocaust Drama with Music

Author(s): & &

The true story of the Czech ghetto Terezín, renamed by Hitler, Theresienstadt, in his bid to fool the world and to hide the truth about what he was actually doing to the Jews. The “City for Jews” disguised the facts with a façade of beautification to fool the Red Cross inspectors—populating the city with artists, writers, musicians and scholars forced into lying. The alternative: being sent to Auschwitz.
