Few films have dealt with the Holocaust as freshly and gracefully as this haunting, subtle, and touching feature. Voyages is an ingeniously linked tale centered on three contemporary Jewish women at the crossroads of life.

The Music of the Holocaust

This year the Kupferberg Holocaust Center introduces a new program component, The Music of the Holocaust. In 2011 we launched Music in Hell, an exhibit that told the story of music created by Jewish musicians in the ghettos and camps during World War II. There was even a story of Jewish partisans in the forests of Bielorussia who fostered a musical troupe while managing to avoid Nazi patrols. This year, we are expanding this project into a series of three dynamic workshops where participants will listen to and discuss Music of the Holocaust:

From the ghettoes of Vilna, Krakow, Bialysok, Lodz, Kovno... Songs of protest, Partisan songs of the Bielski Brigade and other groups, Music played and sung in the camps, Conductors memorializing the Shoah, Shostakovich, Schoenberg, Ullman, Waxman, Krasa and Penderecki

Heading this initiative will be Leona Schwab, an adjunct at Queensborough Community College’s Music Department. Ms. Schwab has presented this music at a number of venues including the 92nd Street Y, Molloy College and senior centers in the New York Metropolitan area.

Dates are as follows:
Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at 1:00 PM | Monday, May 12, 2014 at 1:00 PM | Monday, June 9, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Registration limited to 20 persons. All Participants must pre-register at 718-281-5770.
