2. Konzert des Festivals "Musikalischer Widerstand gegen das 'Protektorat' " - Der von NS-Verfolgung betroffene tschechische Komponist Petr Eben - Musik und Gespräch

In the organizer's words:

Talk concert about Petr Eben

Born in East Bohemia in 1929 , PetrEben was no longer allowed to attend school from 1944 because of his Jewish father and grandfather as a "half-Jew". He was conscripted into forced labor and his grandmother was deported to the Theresienstadt ghetto. In spring 1945, he was sent to Buchenwald concentration camp with his father and brother. After the war, Eben studied composition and organ in Prague, but was still subjected to reprisals due to his political views.
