Music during the Holocaust
“When ordinary language fails, poetry and song find expression. In the songs of the Holocaust, the poets who crafted the words and the people whose voices gave life to these songs, expressed their deepest despair and their brightest dreams, their resilience and resistance, their loves and their losses. These songs were written in the midst of suffering and horror and were created and sung in the ghettos, the forests and the camps. They are a testament to the human spirit, and to enduring humanity and creativity in the maelstrom of an inhumane world.” (Segal Centre for Performing Arts)
Tickets can be purchased through the Segal Centre for Performing Arts and cost $20 or $40 including the CD.
