Join Kerem Shalom of Concord online for “Music Speaks: The Musical Legacy of the Terezin Concentration Camp,” on the anniversary of Kristallnacht.

This program, featuring a powerful and remarkable documentary by Michael Shocket on music composed at the Terezin concentration camp, will be followed by comments from cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

The captioned documentary film “Music Speaks” by Michael Shocket focuses on Terezin, a Nazi concentration camp near Prague, where music played a central role among Jewish composers, musicians and singers interned in the camp during the 1930s. In the video, George Horner, a 90-year-old survivor of Terezin, is shown performing at Boston Symphony Hall with Yo-Yo Ma during a 2013 concert to benefit the Terezin Music Foundation.

Yo-Yo Ma’s comments, prepared specifically for this program, focus on the role of music as a lifeline in times of unimaginable struggle and is an inspiration to all of us today. During the program, Shocket will describe what he learned on his journey to create his film and will participate in a Q&A.
