Music in the Shoah: Savagery and Survival

Throughout the depth and breadth of the Holocaust, music found its way into every crack and corner, from the well-documented cultural life in Theresienstadt to singing prisoners in Sachsenhausen to children's choirs in Lodz to recently discovered music written by a 12-year-old girl in the Warsaw Ghetto. Music was also used as a means of violence by the Nazi SS as well. Join Professor Teryl Dobbs, University of Wisconsin-Madison, as she shares her research on music in the Shoah.
