The Holocaust’s Impact on Music

Eric Gertner

In this compelling morning session, Eric Gertner examines the impact of the Nazis’ coming to power and the Holocaust on Jewish musicians and Jewish music. Eric will begin with 1933 and take us through the changing musical decades to the present, when we witness for the first time in history a Grammy nomination for a Yiddish album. This is a remarkable presentation!
