“The film recounts how a chorus of inmates at the Jewish concentration camp of Terezin – artists, musicians and poets led by conductor Raphael Schächter – performed a version of one of the world’s most powerful choral works, Verdi’s Requiem, before an audience of Nazi senior officers and members of the International Red Cross, as a message of condemnation of their captors.”
