“A concert about those whose glances recorded their lives in an invisible diary, those for whom the barrack wall was a prayer book, who kept their violins, whose fates eventually became the pride of the world. About Kaunas and its special spirit”, say the organizers.
During the concert, the most prominent personalities of Kaunas Jews will be mentioned: Emmanuel Levinas, one of the most interesting philosophers of the 20th century, Lea Goldberg, the national poet of Israel, and the poet Abba Kovner. The concert will recall an extraordinary event in which the musicians – survivors of the Kaunas and Vilnius ghettos – participated. On 7 May 1946, this “Jewish Ex-Concentration Camp Orchestra” gave a concert at the Nuremberg Opera House during the Nuremberg Trials. It was a triumph of spiritual resistance.
Venue of the concert: Amphitheatre of Žalgiris Arena, Karaliaus Mindaugo str. 50
