What do 28 children from Holmdel, Colts Neck, Matawan, Keansburg and Middletown have in common with Holocaust survivor Ela Weissberger? A love of music, and a 69-year-old opera.

” ‘Brundibar’ was an opera put on by the children in a concentration camp called Terezin,” Dale Daniels, executive director of the Center for Holocaust Studies at Brookdale Community College, Lincroft, said of the Duncan Smith Theater’s latest production. “The theme of the people in the play is very much good triumphing over evil. It was really a form of resistance representing the art, the culture and the spirit of the people at that time.”
