OUR WILL TO LIVE • Holocaust and genocide education programs
Contact Terezín Music Foundation for more information or to bring a program to your school or community.
The story of the Terezín artists, richly captured in Our Will to Live, is ideal for teaching about propaganda, intolerance, genocide, and the power of art to sustain us. Our education programs inspire compassion, empathy, and a deeper understanding of history.
