#education: eLearning-Plattform ‚Musik im KZ Theresienstadt‘

#education: eLearning platform 'Music in the Theresienstadt Concentration Camp'

The new eLearning platform of the JCOM has had a furious start: in the first week, over 1500 users have already clicked through the virtual rooms and finally reached the 360° video with the new recording of the Tale of Love and Death of the Cornet Christoph Rilke by Viktor Ullmann. In this video, viewers can freely choose their perspective and experience the speaker Sabin Tambrea and the musicians of the JCOM in different rooms of the concentration camp memorial.

The artistic director of the JCOM, Daniel Grossmann, designed the new eLearning platform to introduce students and all interested parties to various aspects of cultural life and, in particular, music creation in the Theresienstadt concentration camp. With the support of numerous partners and experts (including for the didactics of the content to be conveyed and the architectural structure of the pages), Music in the Theresienstadt concentration camp for this year’s International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

In three different rooms, users discover information about the general living conditions in the Theresienstadt concentration camp, about cultural life and the visit of the International Red Cross, and about the composer Viktor Ullmann, who was interned there from 1942 to 1944. Particularly impressive: short excerpts from a conversation with contemporary witness Michaela Vidláková, who was deported to Theresienstadt at the age of six. The entire interview with her is currently also being published on YouTube.

The plan is to further develop the eLearning platform for international use.
