[Defiant Requiem] is an event not to be missed by anyone
who is willing to HAVE HIS OR HER LIFE CHANGED FOREVER.
When I finally arrived at Terezín, I felt I was walking with those people —
I SENSED THEY WERE THERE WITH ME. I wanted to profoundly discuss with my students what Jewish life was like before the Holocaust and what was lost.
For the viewer, what ultimately remains after watching Defiant Requiem is
THE INTENSE REALITY OF WHAT SINGING VERDI’S MUSIC MEANT
to the prisoners of Terezín who had been condemned to death.
[Defiant Requiem] had A PROFOUND IMPACT ON MY STUDENTS,
the University of Alaska and the culture of Anchorage.
