description: Davidson has created a moving and uplifting suite out of poems written between 1941 and 1944 by children who were imprisoned in the Terezin concentration camp. Most of these children were murdered in the Auschwitz death camp, but through Davidson’s composition their voices live on, a moving testament to the faith and optimism of young children under oppression.
