Cabaret in Captivity, songs and sketches written in Terezin/Theresienstad, will be having its annual Holocaust Remembrance Day Performance on April 9 and 16 at Pangea. Terezin was located an hour away from Prague, and during World War II it served as both an internment camp and a way station for the concentration camps during the Holocaust. Full of satire, bitter humor, and hope, these pieces demonstrate how art became a vital survival technique for the inmates. Most of these pieces were recently recovered through the efforts of scholar Lisa Peschel, who also translated the majority of the work.
