The concert took place on August 6, 2010, 11 a.m. at the Wolyn Jewry Hall, ‎Givatayim, in cooperation with Yad Vashem and the Association of Israelis of ‎Central European Origin.‎

The concert brought the first performance of the composer’s class, dealing with ‎Viktor Ullmann’s last work “The Lay of the Love and Death of Cornet Christoph ‎Rilke”, written in the ghetto to the text of the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. The concert ‎opened with “Duo for Violin and Cello” by Gideon Klein, composed just before ‎his deportation to ghetto Theresienstadt. For this reason only the whole first ‎chapter and nearly the whole second chapter were preserved. The composition ‎by Michael Wolpe “From the South”; music for chamber ensemble, inspired by ‎Abba Kovner’s poem concluded the concert. ‎

The ensemble “Meitar” was directed by Nir Cohen.‎

At the opening of the event Oded Breda greeted the audience and expressed ‎the appreciation of Beit Theresienstadt to prof. David Bloch, musicologist and ‎researcher of music composed in ghetto Theresienstadt. Alas, prof. Bloch died ‎the day the concert was given.‎

Dr. Frumy Shchori, director of the Center at the Wolyn Jewry hall addressed the ‎participants in the name of the Central School for Teaching the Holocaust at ‎Yad Vashem; Ms Chana Uriel, who is also the chair of the Tel Aviv branch, ‎greeted the audience for the Association of Israelis of Central European Origin – ‎she had relatives in Theresienstadt, too. ‎
