A concert-drama event showcasing the works of 15 Jewish composers imprisoned in the Theresienstadt Concentration Camp (Terezín) during World War II is coming to Buckhead.

Ahavath Achim Synagogue will host The Defiant Requiem Foundation’s “Hours of Freedom: The Story of the Terezín Composer” Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. This performance is the featured 2019 Fran Eizenstat and Eizenstat Family Memorial Lecture, the synagogue’s signature annual event that previously has drawn Nobel Peace Prize and Pulitzer Prize winners and U.S. presidents as speakers.

Murry Sidlin, the foundation’s founder, created and wrote “Hours of Freedom” and will conduct this performance.

The synagogue is located at 600 Peachtree Battle Ave. NW in Atlanta. Admission is free but preregistration is required. For more information on the foundation, visit www.defiantrequiem.org.
