Remembering the Holocaust: A Multi-Disciplinary Student Commemoration of Kristallnacht

In 1938, the Nazis staged violent state-sanctioned, anti-Jewish riots known as Kristallnacht. Commonly translated as "Night of Broken Glass," a reference to the broken windows of synagogues, Jewish-owned stores, community centers, and homes were destroyed that night. It was a turning point in Nazi anti-Jewish policy that would culminate in the Holocaust.

In "Remembering the Holocaust: A Multi-Disciplinary Student Commemoration of Kristallnacht," Goucher students Nadav Marcus '17, Katie Mowrer '15, Gabrielle Spear '15, and Hannah Spiegelman '15 performed oral histories of the Holocaust.

The program also featured the performance of "Voice From The Annex", Opus 46 - A song-cycle for Mezzo-Soprano and Piano composed in 1990 by  José A. Bowen with words from The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, performed by Goucher student Charlotte Khuner '17, soprano and Goucher Professor of Music Lisa Weiss, piano.

Also exhibiting The Artifacts Drawings, featuring the artwork of Nancy Patz.
