The Mischlinge Expose

Tuesday, September 12 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

After the Nuremberg laws imposed labels on so many human beings, were they still able to choose their paths?  Concert pianist Carolyn Enger weaves a multimedia tapestry around a little-known aspect of the Holocaust:  the Mischlinge (a derogatory Nazi term for those neither fully Jewish nor fully Aryan).  Interweaving video and audio testimony from Carolyn’s godmother and her father, with the music of German-Jewish-born composers from the salon period just before the war, the program vividly illustrates what it was like to be between worlds in Germany in the first half of the 20th century.
