David Šulík (aged 13, Liberec): Why did the muses not keep silent in the ghetto


XIX year of the literary and XVII year of the art competitions organized by the Memorial should commemorate the 70th anniversary of a number of first-night cultural events in the Terezin ghetto ahead with Brundibar. Therefore, we had chosen for the main topic the question: “Why did the muses not keep silent in the ghetto?”

The fact that the topic attracted the pupils and students of Czech schools is evident from the number of participants – we have received 501 works within the art competition and 181 works within the literary competition, altogether out of 135 schools across the country. Like in previous years, prices were sponsored by the former Terezin prisoner Ms. Hana Greenfield and the Terezin Initiative.
Prizes were distributed among the contestants, however, this year they unfortunately could not be handed over at a ceremony in Terezin as it used to be the rule in previous years. The organization of the ceremonial event was interrupted by the floodwater which reached the Terezin town in early June. The awards ceremony had to be cancelled due to operational reasons and prizes were sent to the winners by post.

Scorecards as well as winning artwork can be found on the Terezin Memorial websites.

Random Quote

S příchodem nacistů se mé dětské mysli otevřely podivné obzory. Uvědomil jsem si, že nelze spontánně ctít starosty, radní, duchovní, soudce, učitele, různé přednosty, ale že si naši úctu musí zasloužit. Vždyť někteří z těch, které jsem míval v oblibě, zvedali pravici k poctě vůdce a později pilně vstupovali do komunistické strany. Začal jsem brzy lidi třídit. — Tom Luke, Kolektiv autorů: Pokoj 127, Domov mládeže Q708, Terezín, Gymnázium Plzeň a o.s. HUMR, 2007, s. 89.
