This camp was sort of a “showcase” of Nazi propaganda, which was to demonstrate “model” concentration camp, who sent the Jewish intellectual elite of Europe. Among the prisoners Teresina had a lot of scientists, writers and politicians of international fame, and through him was a whole galaxy of composers. The camp was produced by logs, carried out performances, the musicians gave concerts. This did not prevent the regular shipment of prisoners from Theresienstadt to Auschwitz, where the death machine was working like a conveyor belt. Many new arrivals were sent immediately to the gas chambers.

such has been the fate of the composers whose works will be performed at the concert. All of them were performed in Theresienstadt. For example, the Opera “Brundibar” Czech composer Hans Krasa was performed in Theresienstadt 55 times before he was deported to Auschwitz, where he soon died.
