During the oppressive days of World War II in 1942, the Nazis established a unique ghetto/ concentration camp outside Prague in an old army garrison known as Terezín, which the Germans renamed Theresienstadt. Theresienstadt was unlike any other Nazi concentration camp: the Nazis used the site to perpetuate an elaborate scheme to deceive the world into believing that they were treating prisoners humanely. In fact, Jews and other "enemies" of the Nazis were rounded up throughout central Europe and sent to Terezín, which served as a brutal camp where thousands died of malnutrition and disease. If you were lucky enough to survive Terezín, your ultimate destination was Auschwitz. Defiant Requiem is a feature-length documentary film which illuminates the extraordinary, untold story of the brave acts of resistance by the Jewish prisoners at Terezín.
