Notes & Reviews:

The Nazis presented Theresienstadt as a model "city for the Jews," a self-governing ghetto with "normal" civic, educational, and cultural life. The bitter irony remains that in Theresienstadt there was indeed a remarkable flowering of cultural life between 1942 and 1944, involving concerts, opera, theater, cabaret, lectures, art exhibitions, and literary readings. Two generations of composers are represented in this remarkable collection - those that came of age after WWI, and those who were just finishing their studies when Germany invaded their home land.
