Live For Each Moon - Shoah Songs Volume Two: From Theresienstadt

$7.00

*This is for the cassette edition - hand made to order*

The second in a trilogy working towards an understanding of the Shoah. The narrative of Volume Two is shaped around the plight of the Czech Jews of Bohemia: a life of the mind torn from home; interned in K.Z. charades paraded as reality; destroyed in the death chambers of Crematorium V at Birkenau. The suffering of a systematic betrayal unfathomable - deception complicit in every step, countless visions unfold as unrealized lives of bounty are snatched by hatred.

In memory.
