31 Jul Theresienstadt (FITAG 2020 inaugural performance). Projecte GIRONA PREN VIDA
Tuesday 25th August
Steps at Girona Cathedral, 21 h
One hundred Jews and their families — men, women, and children — board the train to be taken to the Theresienstadt concentration camp in the Czech Republic, and during the transfer they sing that they are a people of peace and that they will not be harmed. They are disinfected, dressed in striped uniforms and forced to clean tirelessly. Food is scarce and the work unbearable. The restlessness (or the illusion) to live makes them discover a treasure, the operetta Brundibár. The rehearsals are a distraction from the horrors they experience, and the staging is finalized with a new trip to Auschwitz.
