Emmy-winner Bebe Neuwirth narrates the little-known story of a group of Theresienstadt prisoners who bravely organize a powerful form of musical resistance. Under the leadership of imprisoned conductor Rafael Schächter, a group of over 150 inmates performed Verdi’s Requiem – a song of death reimagined as a message of hope and justice – in front of the Nazi high command.
