VOICES OF TEREZÍN incorporates the play Smoke of Home, a powerful piece written by two remarkable Czech men, Zdeněk Eliáš & Jiří Stein, who were imprisoned at Terezín, a concentration camp in what is now the Czech Republic. Prisoners found release from their unbearable circumstances through artistic creations ranging from operas and cabarets to concerts and covertly produced drawings that collectively recorded the truth of the camp. Although Smoke of Home is a play about prisoners of the Thirty Years’ War, its themes paralleled the longing for home of those interned at Terezín. It was never performed inside the camp.
