About us

The Viktor Ullmann Foundation was founded by the British concert pianist Jacqueline Cole in 2002. The purpose of the Foundation is to honour, celebrate and remember the life, courage and genius of the composer and pupil of Arnold Schoenberg, and his fellow artists and musicians in the Theresienstadt (Terezín) ghetto. This will be achieved through concerts, festivals, cabaret, lectures, Holocaust education and film.
