Music is the through-line of my grandfather’s life. Music made him famous as a child singing in Warsaw. Music saved his life as a prisoner in the Nazi concentration camps. Music helped him establish roots and community in the United States. Music is the story, the pain and joy wrapped in tradition and memory, that he has passed along to me.
Come hear his story in music, with a concert event that we will perform together, including a song he composed while a prisoner in Auschwitz that I translated into English.
