Seattle’s Music of Remembrance (MOR) presents the world premiere of a new feature documentary, The Boys of Terezín, at the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) Downtown (1300 First Avenue) on Sunday, October 30, at 2:30 p.m. The screening will take place in SAM’s Plestcheeff Auditorium, and will be followed by a post-film discussion with the director and cinematographer, and local teens interviewed for the film.
MOR Artistic Director Mina Miller, an internationally known speaker on artists’ spiritual resistance during the Holocaust, will introduce the 51-minute film created by John Sharify, known to many in the Seattle area from his decades as an award-winning TV news journalist.
“Imagine you’re a Jewish teenager—in 1942,” the documentary’s synopsis suggests. “The Nazis have occupied your country. You’ve been deported to the concentration camp at Terezin. You don’t know your fate—but in fact most of your friends will be sent to a death camp over the next two years.” Read more about the film here.
