A CLASSROOM IN THERESIENSTADT is a seven minute video commissioned for the 'Within Walls' exhibition at the Sydney Jewish Museum. Theresienstadt is an old fortress town 60 kilometres north of Prague. In 1941, the Nazis established Theresienstadt as a ghetto for Jews. Frank Weiss survived his imprisonment there and Auschwitz and now lives in Sydney as a retired engineer. Our film tells the story of an event that Frank recollects from one afternoon in 1942.
