Celebrating Terezin's music

The Nash Ensemble has been performing rarely heard music from Terezin, the Czech town which housed a Nazi concentration camp between 1942-1944. Several great composers were interned there and, like most of the camp's prisoners, they were transported to Auschwitz and killed.

Reporter Sanchia Berg talks to two survivors and performers from the Terezin camp, Zdenka Fantlova and Greta Hoffmeister-Klingsberg, and to Amelia Freedman, founder of the Nash Ensemble.
