    Alfred's name is on this list of Terezin lecturers: ~jb

In the sheltering darkness of the long evenings, they were together in the cold and gloomy attic of a barrack, close under the roof. There they stood, pressed close to each other, to hear a talk about the Bible and the Talmud, about Plato, Aristotle, Maimonides, about Descartes and Spinoza, about Locke and Hume and Kant or about days and problems of history, about poetry and art and music, about Palestine of old and today, about the Commandments, the Prophets, and the Messianic idea. All those hours were hours in which a community arose out of the mass and the narrowness grew wide. They were hours of freedom. -Leo Baeck

Theresienstadt (Terezin), an 18th century fortress near Prague was converted by the Nazis into a transit point.

Jews were interned in Terezin sometimes for as long as two years before being sent to extermination camps. The prisoners were mainly professional people from Czechoslovakia, Germany, Austria, Holland and Denmark, many of them a part of the European cultural elite and included thousands of children.

Despite the miserable conditions and numerous deaths from starvation and diseases, hunger and other extreme conditions the prisoners clung to their cultural values - books, art, music, intellectual debate, humor and irony.

Europe's culture survives

Volumes have been written about the culture that survived in Theresienstadt. Hundreds of professionals and academics gave thousands of lectures on all imaginable cultural and scientific subjects. In the documents that survived the war, many of them explain the main motivation for this work - first, to prepare and educate the youth for the post-war life; and second - to revive their own professional self-esteem and replace the misery of physical existence with the richness of spiritual life.

Lectures substituted teaching that was forbidden by the Nazis. Delivered in scattered miserable attics and cellars, however cold or hot the weather, the lectures took the shape of full courses in history, philosophy, art, literature, medicine, science, Judaism and other fields. They attracted tens of thousands of young people and adults, hungry and exhausted after their day’s work - the triumph of human dignity and integrity in the face of death.

The inmates had to report to the Nazis all cultural activities that took place in the camp. Ironically, surviving reports proved a precious source to recover data for thousands of lectures - including their titles, time and locations.

  • Some of the speakers were well-known before the war in their own right, for example, Dr. Leo Baeck, Chief Rabbi of Germany, Alfred Meissner, Minister of Masaryk Government in Czechoslovakia, and composer Viktor Ullmann.
  • Others survived the Holocaust and found wider recognition afterwards, like psychologist Viktor Frankl, historian Miroslav Karny, writer Josef Bor (Bondy), and author Norbert Fried.
  • The majority perished. Their careers stopped short, together with their lives; they were simply forgotten. They were such fascinating people as the Jewish philosopher Jehuda Palache, the psychologist Max Brahn, the art historian Max Bohm, the classical philologist Maximillian Adler, the psychologist Gertrude Boeml, the art collector Hugo Friedmann, the journalist Philipp Manes, and the semitologist Moizis Woskin.

The independent research group Elena Makarova Initiatives has undertaken to collect all dispersed information about Terezin lectures and lecturers stored in the archives and libraries of Europe, Israel and the US. The result of this work is a computer database with 520 names and 2430 lecture titles, supported by volumes of related documents and copies. As far as we know, it is the most comprehensive collection ever compiled.

The purpose of the Wiki on-line publication is to bring to the public’s attention the information collected. For more details on any particular person on our list, read - University over the Abyss or contact Elena Makarov, Sergei Makarov or Victor Kuperman. “ We have done our utmost to ensure that our research is accurate. However it may contain some errors. We would be grateful for any comments and additions to our list”.
