The documentary film "Defiant Requiem" tells the story of Czech conductor and pianist Rafael Schächter and his production of Verdi’s Messa da Requiem in Theresienstadt, more than 70 years ago. Director Doug Shultz combines the recollections of surviving members of Schächter’s choir with archival material, and documents the rehearsals of Murry Sidlin’s production "Defiant Requiem" in Theresienstadt today.
