Remembering Kristallnacht: We Want the Light

9 November, 2022 at 7:00 pm - 10 November, 2022 at 7:00 pm

To mark the remembrance of Kristallnacht, we are proud to be partnering with the Jewish Music Institute to present a film by Christopher Nupen & Allegro Films investigating the fruitful but complex relationship between Jews and German Music.

Interviews include: Elyakim Ha’etzni, Margaret Brearley, Leom Botstein, Samuel Adler, Hellmut Stern, Jacques Stroumsa, Pinchas Zuckerman, Michael Haas, Daniel Barenboim, Anita Lasker-Wallfisch and Alice Sommer Herz.

Preceding the film will be an introduction from Exilarte’s Dr Michael Haas about the extent of the creative work of German and Austrian Jewish composers that existed before the Nazis denounced them as “degenerate” or “Entartet” and as later codified by the Nuremberg laws, the subsequent consequence of which continue to effect the classical repertoire to this very day.

This screening is a JMI – Jewish Music Institute partnership with Allegro Films, in association with: AJR – Association of Jewish Refugees, Exilarte, Sir Martin Gilbert Learning Centre, Centre for German-Jewish studies – University of Sussex and the Weiner Holocaust Library.
