Carnegie Hall - Ittai Shapira: The Ethics

Concert Commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the Liberation of Theresienstadt Concentration Camp.

Ittai Shapira: The Ethics

Inspired by the international educational work of Humanity in Action, violinist and composer Ittai Shapira premieres his newest composition in this concert commemorating the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Theresienstadt. In The Ethics, Shapira invokes the music and memory of the Jewish prisoners of the camp, offering a contemporary response to Brundibár—the opera Jewish children were forced to perform for their Nazi captors. Nobel Laureate Eric Kandel speaks about mind and memory, and American artist Judy Glickman Lauder presents photographs of Theresienstadt.
