If you have ever been touched, or had your life changed, by a song, film, book or performance, you inherently understand the transformative power of the arts. In this new book based upon interviews conducted for the documentary film, Making Light in Terezin, Richard Krevolin reveals the true story of how, in WWII’s darkest days, prisoners in the Terezin ghetto (outside of Prague) made light and found a mechanism for survival through theater, song, dance and laughter... Making Light in Terezin follows a modern day Minnesota theater group as they travel to Terezin to perform a cabaret piece originally created and enacted there during WWII. Weaving together interviews with performers, Holocaust survivors and scholars discussing Jewish humor, Jewish history and more, it tells a story not only of survival but also the triumph of a culture, artistic expression, and the human spirit. This book, Making Light in Terezin: The Show Helps Us Go On, co-written with Nancy Cohen, celebrates the indomitable creative spirit that was alive—and helped save lives—in 1943.
