Strings of Inspiration: Tragic Loss and Courageous Survival in the Women’s Orchestra of Auschwitz-Birkenau -
The women’s orchestra at Auschwitz-Birkenau was the most eclectic, the most unique, the most controversial, and, without any question, the most zealously documented gathering of female musical talent the world has ever known. By many regards, it was also the most inspiring. Temple member Bruce Colegrove will share some of the most remarkable events in the life of this group – and also the context of brutal horror in which those events occurred.
