Actress Zdenka Fantlova On Cabaret In Terezín

In 1941, as the Nazis were rounding up Jews in occupied Bohemia* for deportation to the death camps, they established a “temporary holding camp” in Terezín, just north of Prague. Despite Nazi terror and the desperate conditions common to the ghetto, the Terezín internees produced for themselves a rich and creative cultural community, full of great music, art and educational activity.

92nd Street Y will explore the range of Terezín life in upcoming programming, Will to Create, Will to Live: The Culture of Terezín, drawing from 92Y’s myriad specialties.

This will include a panel discussion with Terezín survivors Zdenka Fantlová (seen in the video above) and Zuzana Justman on January 18. Along with Simon Broughton and Ruth Franklin, the panel will delve into one of the most moving and inspiring stories of the Holocaust era.

* Bohemia is the region now generally identified as the western part of the Czech Republic.
