acclaimed documentary film "The Defiant Requiem" will be featured at
the Escape the Ordinary Adult Summer Reading Program Brown Bag Chat on
Wednesday, July 1, noon, at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox
County, 201 N. Mulberry Street.
Imprisoned in a Nazi
concentration camp, composer Rafael Schächter and fellow inmates use the
power of music to fight back. In this moving, award-winning documentary
film with excerpts from survivors and their families, a memorial
concert reawakens the story of an artistic uprising in the Nazi
concentration camp, Terezin, where a chorus of 150 inmates confronts the
Nazis face-to-face…and sings to them what they dare not say.
program is free and open to the public of all ages. Refreshments served
or feel free to bring your own bag lunch. Participants are encouraged
to sign up for the Escape the Ordinary Adult Summer Reading Program to
be eligible for weekly and monthly prizes.
