UJA-Federation of New York Defiant Requiem





A Concert to Benefit UJA-Federation of New York’s Community Initiative for Holocaust Survivors

WHAT: UJA-Federation of New York, along with The Defiant Requiem Foundation and Selfhelp Community Services, Inc., presents Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín on Monday, April 29, 2013, at 7:30 p.m., at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City. A two-hour concert-drama, Defiant Requiem memorializes the courage of Jewish Holocaust prisoners in Theresienstadt (Terezín), who defied their Nazi captors by producing a profusion of arts and scholarship despite conditions of deprivation and hopelessness. All proceeds benefit UJA-Federation’s Community Initiative for Holocaust Survivors (CIHS), which provides support to Holocaust survivors, enabling them to live with independence, comfort, and dignity.

Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín is a production of the full Requiem Mass by Giuseppe Verdi that was performed 16 times by a chorus of 150 Jewish prisoners in Theresienstadt Detention Camp in 1943 and 1944. The last, most infamous performance occurred on June 23, 1944, before the International Red Cross and high-ranking Nazi officials from Berlin. After this performance, many members of the chorus were deported to Auschwitz. The prisoner-singers sang every performance in a spirit of defiance, singing to their captors the Latin text of the Requiem, words they dared not speak. Defiant Requiem presents this story through the voices of the soloists and actors, a full chorus and orchestra, and segments of Nazi propaganda film and videotaped witness testimony, between movements of the music. The presentation was created by Maestro Murry Sidlin.

William A. Ackman, Patti Askwith Kenner, and Carol Levin serve as event chairs. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel and Ambassador Stuart E. Eizenstat, chairman of the board of The Defiant Requiem Foundation, serve as honorary chairs.

A reception, open to event sponsors, honoring Holocaust survivor Ernest W. Michel, executive vice president emeritus of UJA-Federation of New York, will take place prior to the concert.

WHEN: Monday, April 29, 2013

7:30 p.m.

WHERE: Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, New York City

Corner of Columbus Avenue and 65th Street

TICKETS: Tickets ranging from $50-$150 may be purchased beginning Monday, February 4, 2013, by calling Center Charge at 1.212.721.6500 or visiting . For sponsorship information, visit .
