The Jews from Denmark in Theresienstadt


11. maj 2023

Online lecture

Join the online lecture by Therkel Straede

470 Jews from Denmark ended up in the Theresienstadt near Prague. While most Danish Jews managed to escape, the 470 Jewish men and women – children, adults, and elderly – got to experience the terror and hardship of the Holocaust in a horrible Nazi ghetto. 53 did not survive the stay.

The www.danskejoederitheresienstadt.org website uses memoirs and video-interviews to document their ghetto experience, fears, but also hopes and ‘free spaces’ in a world of outmost oppression.

Therkel Straede will demonstrate the diversity of their experience and reflections.
