Five Holocaust survivors, a boychoir, and a chamber music group unite to tell the story of the secret concentration camp journal created under the nose of the Nazis.
The uplifting documentary is testament to the way that the drive for creativity cannot be stifled, even under the most challenging conditions. Risking their lives, the teenage residents of Home, a children's concentration camp, created a magazine called Vedem that chronicled their daily lives through essays, poems and pictures. The last boy to remain at Terezin buried all 800 pages, retrieving the manuscript after liberation. In 2010, Music of Remembrance commissioned Vedem , an oratorio based on the boys' experiences, to be performed by the Seattle Boychoir.
