Music on The Brink of Destruction

Wednesday, 26 January 2022, 13:00 - 14:00


Website: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/events/events/2022/jan/music-brink-destruction



An extraordinary range of musical activities, both forced and voluntary, took place in the Nazi ghettos and camps, from the earliest internment centres established in 1933 until the liberation in 1945.

The musical works created there by prisoners are extraordinary documents from the time. In this talk, Professor Shirli Gilbert will present original songs from this period, including some rare post-war recordings.

The songs offer rich insight into victims’ experiences, conveying the uncertain and shifting perspectives of prisoner communities as they made sense of lived reality.
