In the face of horrific living conditions, starvation and the threat of deportation to Auschwitz, the Jewish inmates of Terezin concentration camp-artists, musicians, poets and writers-fought back...with art and music. Six decades later, conductor Murry Sidlin and a new choir take Verdi's Requiem back to Terezin and bring the story of Raphael Schachter's artistic uprising back to life.
