Humanities Event: "The Boys of Terezín" Documentary

Sponsored by the Humanities Center and funded by the Global Education Initiative, this event brings to our campus a screening of the documentary "The Boys of Terezín." This film takes you inside the infamous concentration camp – seen through the eyes of teenage boys imprisoned there, and remembered through the words they wrote in a clandestine magazine. Meet five remaining survivors, reunited 65 years later at the premiere of an oratorio that gives musical voice to their lost friends’ extraordinary poems.

Introduced by Mina Miller, Artistic Director of Music of Remembrance, a non-profit organization dedicated to remembering Holocaust musicians and their art through musical performances, educational programs, musical recordings, and commissions of new works. MOR is the only independent non-profit organization in the world with this comprehensive mission. This event is free and open to the campus and the community. Reservations are not necessary.
