Otevřený dopis Pavla Štingla ministru kultury

Remembrance of BIIb

With this summer concert commemorating the liquidation of the Terezín family camp, the Memorial of Silence once again expanded the range of its activities. With his performance in the Large Courtyard of Prague’s Trade Fair Palace, distinguished Czech-American conductor Petr Kotík brought a distinctive classical music experiment to the Memorial’s music series, one moreover intended as an homage to the renowned composer’s grandfather, who was deported to Terezín from this very place.

Many thanks for their support for this memorial event go to, among others, President Petr Pavel, Minister of Culture Martin Baxa, and members of the Memorial of Silence’s advisory board Petr Pithart and rabbi Karol Sidon.
