MODA Members and Friends are invited to a tour of the VEDEM UNDERGROUND exhibition at the Breman Jewish Heritage Museum!

VEDEM UNDERGROUND, produced by the VEDEM Foundation, is an art installation that deconstructs and reinterprets the literary work of the teenage Jewish creators of the longest-running underground magazine in a Nazi camp. From 1942 to 1944, Vedem (“In the Lead” in Czech) chronicled life within the walls of Czechoslovakia’s Terezin Ghetto, and was a symbol of protest, rebellion and creative activism by some of the era’s youngest resistance fighters.

Using a combination of pop-art graphics, archival photographs and cartoons as well as the prose and poetry created by the magazine’s contributors, VEDEM UNDERGROUND celebrates the artistic and cultural legacy of Vedem by breaking down its 83 weekly issues totaling 800 pages, then reconstructing them in the form of a contemporary magazine.
