Mark Ludwig founded the Terezín Music Foundation in 1991. A Fulbright scholar of the Terezín composers, he has authored essays, program notes, and a Holocaust curriculum for schools. Harvard University, the University of Virginia, and Charles University in Prague are among the many schools where Mr. Ludwig has appeared as guest lecturer.

At its inception in 1991, Terezin Music Foundation took on the urgent work of recovering, preserving, and performing the music created by the Terezín artists. TMF, and, in particular, the Hawthorne String Quartet, has made their musical legacy well known and has firmly established their works in the classical repertoire.

Inspired by the Terezín artists, TMF also sponsors new commissions by emerging composers, to create a vibrant memorial, tribute, and voice to those who perished in the Holocaust and to all who are silenced by war or genocide.
