The Jews from Denmark in Theresienstadt
11. maj 2023
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.
