One Voice, Two Lives

Avi Wisnia David Wisnia Poland Auschwitz

I just returned from traveling through Poland with my grandfather. Together, we did several performances there, taking some time to visit places in Warsaw where my grandfather grew up, and in Auschwitz where my grandfather was held prisoner by the Nazis. It was an incredibly profound journey, and it inspired me to do a lot of writing. Read my blog posts from our time in Poland: HERE.

I am so fortunate to have these moments with my grandfather, experiencing and reliving his life story. His memoir, One Voice, Two Lives, has just been published and is now available online. My grandfather will be doing a book signing event in New Jersey this month (and we may even put a little music together). I am so proud that he is sharing his story with the world. Come and hear his story (and buy his book).
