Register and pre-order a signed copy here!
An in-depth new picture of Terezín's cultural life arrives with Our Will to Live. It brings the first English translation of Ullmann's firsthand accounts of Terezín's concerts, composers and a generation of accomplished artists silenced too soon—plus a trove of stunning, rarely seen art created by Terezín prisoners, and an original collection of vintage and new music tracks performed by survivors and contemporary masters. The result of 30 years of original research. Created, introduced, and richly annotated by Mark Ludwig, executive director of the Terezín Music Foundation.
Mark Ludwig is a leading expert on music as resistance in times of oppression and genocide and a Fulbright scholar of Terezín. He is a violist emeritus with the BSO and founder/executive director of the Terezín Music Foundation.
