WJC teens & friends: A night of Holocaust Education in honor of Kristallnacht: Film & Conversation with Conductor Murry Sidlin

Tuesday, November 9, 6:00-8:00pm (Dinner from 6:00-6:30pm)

On the anniversary of Kristallnacht, WJC Teens will watch a short film documenting the remarkable story of a brilliant young Czech conductor, Rafael Schächter, and the one hundred and fifty fellow prisoners at the Terezín concentration camp whom he led in learning and performing Verdi’s Requiem. Murry Sidlin is a widely acclaimed conductor and the creator of Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín, a concert program honoring the heroic musicians who defied the Nazis through their music; he has conducted Verdi’s Requiem at Terezín and around the world. Following the screening, Mr. Sidlin, also President and Creative Director of the Defiant Requiem Foundation, will speak with the teens about the film and the events it portrays. Emily Natbony, a WJC congregant who is now Education Program Manager at the Defiant Requiem Foundation, will join Mr. Sidlin in conversation with the teens.
