What is the relationship of music to the Holocaust –what meaning did music come to hold for the victims of the Nazis, and what place does it have in adding to our understanding ofthe history of the Holocaust? What place does it have in Holocaust commemoration, memory and education? Why is it important to perform pieces composed during the Holocaust, or by composers who did not survive the Holocaust?
