The Defiant Requiem Foundation, an educational and performance-based non-profit located in Washington, D.C., tells the story of Jewish conductor Rafael Schachter who taught a chorus of 150 prisoners in Terezin to sing Verdi's Requiem as an act of shared humanity and cultural resistance.
The Foundation has recently created a 45-minute classroom version of its award-winning full-length documentary film Defiant Requiem and launched new educational materials to help teachers of social studies, English language arts, music, and art to use the film in their classrooms. The curriculum is presented in a modular format to allow maximum flexibility for teachers and to encourage cross-curricular programming. Attached please find a two-page description of the educational website and the curriculum modules and the link to the website below. The site requires a brief and easy registration process to access the free materials and the password to stream the documentary.
