"The Last Boy" reveals the amazing story of Terezin Concentration Camp survivor Sidney Taussig and the other 91 residents of Dorm Number One who - risking their lives - published Vedem magazine for more than a year right under the Nazis' noses.
By late fall 1944, Sid found himself alone, as the last of his friends had been transported East. He spotted the magazine on his friend Peter Ginz' bunk bed, and buried it behind the blacksmith's forge so that the Nazis wouldn't burn it. The blacksmith happened to be Sid's father, and it would be that stroke of luck which would lead to his survival.
When the Russians finally arrived to liberate Terezin on May 8th, 1945, Sidney dug up Vedem and brought it back with him to Prague. If it hadn't been for him, the world would not know about this invaluable artifact that is not only the longest underground running publication of the Holocaust, but the most important document for historians to understand what life was like in Terezin.
The story of Sidney Taussig, and the entries from Vedem magazine will make you laugh, cry and cause you to marvel as it shines a light into the corners of the boys' hearts, minds and souls.
You'll have the privilege of coming to know not only Sid and his incredible journey, but those of other survivors of Terezin Concentration Camp. You'll also come to know your host Steve Fisher and a group of his boys from the Keystone State Boychoir who are on their own incredible journey with Sid and Vedem, which will culminate in a new stage play inspired by Sid's life entitled...you guessed it...The Last Boy. By the end of Episode 1, you'll be on your own journey!
