For Holocaust Remembrance Day, nationally recognized violist and Holocaust educator Dr. Tamara Freeman will lecture and perform music on a rescued 1935 viola once owned by a Jewish musician in Nazi Germany. She’ll play melodies composed by Jews in World War II ghettos and concentration camps.
“This musical tribute will revere the memories of a vibrant and beautiful culture that continues and thrives because of Holocaust Survivors and others who believe that just saying ‘never again’ is never enough,” says Maria MacMullin, senior director of advancement for the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance.
At 10 a.m. Sunday, Temple Shalom will host a minyan to pray for Holocaust victims followed by a brunch at 11 a.m.
Downtown, the Dallas Holocaust Museum will be showing five short films 3-5 p.m. daily now through Sunday. It’s free with museum admission.
