Laitman: Vedem, Fathers
Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Every Friday for two years between 1942 and 1944, a group of teenage boy prisoners in the Terezin concentration camp shared their poems, stories and artwork in a secret magazine they called Vedem. Most of those boys perished in the Holocaust, but the pages of their magazine have miraculously been preserved. Inspired by this legacy, American vocal composer Lori Laitman has created an oratorio. Using verses of the boys' own poetry, this hauntingly beautiful music pays profound tribute to the power of the human spirit. Vedem was commissioned by Music of Remembrance, a Seattle based organization dedicated to remembering Holocaust musicians through their art.
