The Journey of Butterfly (public television stations, broadcast day and time vary): "A black bird sings upon a bush/ To greet the dawning after night./ Then I know how fine it is to live!" A child wrote these words in Terezin, Czechoslovakia, a Jewish ghetto established by Nazis in 1941. This poetry is only one part of a rich collection of children's art that has endured from Terezin - whose beauty and insight, tinged with melancholy, are portrayed in this program.
Filmed in 1991 when the Jewish Museum in Terezin opened, the program includes interviews with several Terezin survivors. Accompanying the museum opening was a concert composed by Charles Davidson with children's words from Terezin. The American Boychoir of Princeton, N.J., performs. (April 16 is the the Holocaust Day of Remembrance.)
