Music of the Holocaust

Shaina Davis

By viewing the Holocaust through a musical timeline, we can only begin to scratch the surface of what life was really like for those who had to live through it.

Like audio snapshots, music offers a telling glimpse into the events and emotions that their creators and original audiences experienced firsthand. In this project, I explore two pieces, both composed by people who were experiencing the brute of the Holocaust. By listening to the music and truly hearing the words, we gain a deeper insight into what life was them.
