VOICES OF THE HOLOCAUST – VOICES OF THE RESISTANCE


 

International Voice of Justice has presented Holocaust Memorial Concerts in many nations of Europe (Germany, France, Norway, Holland, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia) and in the U.S.A. Central to the Holocaust Memorial Concert is the musical drama: VOICES OF THE HOLOCAUST. A song cycle of 11 songs (text: Martha Smith, music: Marilee Eckert and Martha Smith), the work is based on the lives of survivors who resettled in the Washington Heights district of New York City, along with Elie Wiesel, Corrie Ten Boom and Anne Frank. The songs are preceded by vignettes (monologues) presenting the experiences of the victims in their own words. Instrumental music, such as works of Paul Ben-Haim, Ernst Bloch and Max Bruch, are also presented in the memorial concert.

VOICES OF THE RESISTANCE


VOICES OF THE RESISTANCE is a series of vignettes (monologues) based on the lives of resistance workers during World War II from around Europe. In performance of the work, music is used from the classical repertoire will the stories of the resistance heroes are recited. The directors of International Voice of Justice consider keeping the memory of these great heroes alive of great importance. It may serve as a means of setting a standard of behavior for society in response to the persecution of the Jewish people, encouraging responsible citizens to stand against such evils, as members of Europe’s resistance did.
