This multimedia musical program features Brave Old World's arrangements of the rare Jewish music created between 1940-45 in the Nazi ghetto of Lodz, Poland. The songs at the heart of this program were collected in Israel among survivors of the Lodz Ghetto by Dr. Gila Flam of Hebrew University.

Brave Old World's setting of this musical legacy fuses traditional and contemporary musical sensibilities, bridging the concert stage and folk creativity.

This concert is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Memory Unearthed: The Lodz Ghetto Photographs of Henryk Ross on view beginning February 18th at the Museum of Jewish Heritage — A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.
