Register for this event

The second volume in this ongoing ethnomusicological project contains widely diverse compositions in multiple languages drawn from songs sung by survivors in their videotestimonies. Collectively, these songs provide a multidimensional image of the lives of Holocaust survivors and the multiple identities they carried as Jews by faith and roots, and as European citizens.
