The Vedem Underground multimedia project examines the historic, cultural and artistic legacy of Vedem, a teen-authored magazine that was the only underground publication to be regularly produced by Nazi concentration camp prisoners. By examining how young activists inside the Terezin ghetto fearlessly fought anti-Semitism via creative expression, Vedem Underground teaches an invaluable lesson that transcends religion, age and eras to secondary-school and college students.

 

Vedem Underground includes a traveling museum exhibit, a feature documentary film with an Emmy and Oscar winning team, and a cutting-edge educational program.
