Message in a Bottle - Airs March 23rd

Message in a Bottle by Megan Williams
We are introduced to the music and lives of two lost composers: Viktor Ullmann and Gideon Klein. Both men were imprisoned in Terezin, a "model ghetto" created by the Nazis. This is where many of Europe's greatest artists, musicians, and writers were held, and expected to continue to create and perform during the Holocaust. Now, more than 70 years later, some of Ullmann and Klein's music is being re-discovered in attics, under beds, and hidden in libraries around the world.
