When Words Fail Music Speaks/ A Holocaust Narrative
at Manhattan College
Manhattan College
Manhattan College Parkway
Riverdale NY 10471

On April 12th at 5 pm
Holocaust, Genocide and Interfaith Center at Manhattan College in the Bronx 
"When Words Fail, Music Speaks / A Holocaust Narrative'.

This is a one-act play based on the true story of Jewish-Czech composer, Raphael Schachter, an organizer of cultural life in the Terezin ghetto, Hitler's model concentration camp near Prague.  It depicts his preparation of doomed chorus members to perform Verdi's Requiem for an audience of Nazi officials.
Through his music, he raised the spirits of the prisoners in the camp and enabled them to escape the horrors and depravity that was their everyday life, if only for a moment. 
He also damned the Nazis through his interpretation of Requiem which became a mutiny against their tyranny.  A musical equivalent of a riot..
Presented in two scenes, this powerful and dramatic play gives the audience the opportunity to witness the event as it unfolds.  It is both historical and educational. You see it, you hear it, you feel it and you live it!!!

It will be presented in Hayden Hall in the first floor lecture hall.  There is no charge for the event.
