our will to live • music tracks
The button above gives you access to the original collection of 34 vintage and contemporary recordings that accompany OUR WILL TO LIVE, the new book from Mark Ludwig and Terezín Music Foundation.
They are performed by Terezín survivors as well as contemporary masters including Yo-Yo Ma and members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
You will hear music by Gideon Klein, Pavel Haas, Josef Suk, and others — a generation of artists silenced to soon.
YO-YO MA: “Our Will to Live takes readers into the world of Terezín’s silenced artists and makes their voices come alive. A testimony to the inextinguishable strength of the human spirit. There are moments of excruciating beauty, there are heartrending stories, all reminding us that if we lose our humanity, we are nothing.”
