University of Glasgow Annual Holocaust Lecture – 6pm
University of Glasgow Annual Holocaust Lecture
Professor Shirli Gilbert of UCL will speak on ‘Music on the Brink of 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.
