On May 10, 2017, Judith will give an illustrated lecture about the children's musical Broucci or Fireflies, created in the unlikely setting of the Nazi camp Terezin, outside Prague, by four imprisoned Jewish artists and imprisoned children. She will include film clips from the re-creation of Fireflies, performed last spring with children at the Czech Slovak Sokol Center in St. Paul, MN. The lecture will take place at Milwaukee's Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center.

Judith directed and choreographed a re-creation of "Broucci" or "Fireflies" on Sunday, May 15, 2016 at the Sokol Hall in St. Paul, MN.

See behind the scenes of this reproduction of "Broucci" on the Past Projects page.
