Terezin, in movie theaters on Holocaust Remembrance Day

14 February 2023

Terezin, released on January 26 to commemorate the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, tells the story of an unknown side of life lived by Jewish deportees in the early 1940s, inside the detention camp of Theresienstadt, known as the Terezin ghetto, a few kilometers from Prague. Among them many artists and creatives, composers, painters, poets, sculptors and writers, the heart and soul of the European culture of those years.

A powerful story which proves the saving power of art in a context of unspeakable suffering. Gabriele Guidi signs his directorial debut, directing an international cast made by Mauro Conte (Una questione private, Sulla mia pelle), the Slovakian actress Dominika Moravkova, Alessio Boni, Cesare Bocci, Antonia Liskova, Jan Revai, Bořek Slezáček and Marián Mitaš.

The movie is a result of the international coproduction of Minerva Pictures with Rai Cinema, together with the Czech Three Brothers Production.
Great success for the world premiere on January 18, at the Miami Jewish Film Festival, the most important Jewish film festival and the greatest dedicated to the celebration of the movies that explore universal themes of identity, history and culture.


Antonio, Italian clarinetist, and Martina, Czechoslovak violinist, fall in love in Prague during World War II. In 1942 they were deported to Terezin where their story is intertwined with the incredible events of the many artists and intellectuals imprisoned in the ghetto. Human and artistic excellences of central Europe that, during the war, made hundreds of musical productions – still represented – managing to make art a survival tool for thousands of segregated people.
