Editorial Reviews


"Compelling and even poignant accounts of ghetto performances." -- Ulrich Baer, German Studies Review

"A moving and stimulating book." -- Freddie Rokem, Theatre Journal

"The editors present a vivid picture of courage and resilience, dedicated to the memory of those artists who performed during the Holocaust years." -- Choice


"This excellent and meticulously assembled volume is the only work I know to restore the crucial role art, theatre, poetry, and literature actually played in the lives of those interned in the ghettos and concentration camps. As paradoxical as it seems, art and culture too were part and parcel of the events we now call the Holocaust. For as the best essays here show so well, art and culture were not merely escapes from confinement but deeply imagined and often brilliantly articulated responses to these events from within the whirlwind -- an understanding of events largely lost in retrospective accounts alone." -- James E. YoungUniversity of MassachusettsAmherst, author of The Texture of Memory

Format: Paperback
A comprehensive and scholarly look at one of the under-reported aspects of the Holocaust - how even in the face of the most deadly circumstances when life hung by a thread, the victims of the Holocaust refused to give up their cultural life. An inspiring story of how victims of tyranny can defy their oppressors.
