The open-ended format of our testimonies allowed survivors and witnesses to tell their stories as they desired. Several interviewees recalled songs sung in ghettos, labor camps, and concentration camps and sang them on camera. The Fortunoff Archive is working to produce a collection of these songs – documented, composed, and arranged by musicologist and musician D. Zisl Slepovitch.
Join us for a performance of these songs by an international group of musicians including D. Zisl Slepovitch (composition, arrangements, artistic direction, clarinet, alto saxophone, flute), Sasha Lurje (vocals), Joshua Camp (accordion, piano), Dmitry Ishenko (contrabass), and Craig Judelman (violin).
This event is part of the 2019 event series by the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies, Yale University
