Music as Spiritual Resistance Talk

Event Details

Resistance and defiance were often hidden in the artistic work of Jewish musicians imprisoned in Terezín, the Nazi ghetto/camp in Czechoslovakia. Hear compelling stories about this form of resistance from Dr. Laurence Sherr, an internationally recognized Holocaust music lecturer, composer, and educator. Dr. Sherr’s presentation will include eyewitness video clips, archival materials, and his onsite photo documentation.

Dr. Sherr is Composer-in-Residence and Professor of Music at Kennesaw State University. He has been awarded numerous prizes, grants, and fellowships. Performances and lectures have been given in Europe, Israel, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, and across North America. His Music of Resistance and Survival Project features his cello sonata based on songs from the Holocaust.
