Theresienstadt. near Prague, from which Czech Jews were deported east to be exterminated, was a concentration camp poorly disguised as a protective ghetto. Artistic activities were permitted by the Nazis, which postponed some deportations, and several scores of the music composed there have been recovered and begun to attract performances.
