Defiant Requiem: Film and Discussion with Marion Ein Lewin

Defiant Requiem is a feature-length documentary film that tells the extraordinary, untold story of the brave acts of artistic resistance by Jewish prisoners at Theresienstadt (Terezin) during World War II.  This is a film about how a rare form of courage sparked compelling determination to survive by answering the worst of mankind with the best of mankind.

Marion Ein Lewin, a board member of The Defiant Requiem Foundation, is herself a Holocaust survivor.  She will speak and answer questions after the film.  The screening is taking place in recognition of Holocaust Remembrance Day April 12.
