Using their journals and drawings, Voices of the Children rediscovers the years that three children spent in Terezin, the Czech town that the Nazis made into their showcase concentration camp. Filmmaker Zuzana Justman (herself a former Terezin inmate) also follows the three through their difficult adjustments to their subsequent lives in Europe and the United States. The film contrasts a recent performance of the children’s opera Brundibar with the one documented in the Nazi propaganda film about Terezin, Hitler Gives the Jews a Town. Justman introduces the D.C. premiere of her documentary at 7:30 p.m. at the D.C. Jewish Community Center’s Goldman Theater, 16th & Q Sts. NW. $8.50. (202) 518-9400. (MJ)
