Explore “Memory Unearthed: The Lodz Ghetto Photographs of Henryk Ross” through music. In Jewish ghettos and concentration camps during the Holocaust, Nazis organized prisoner orchestras and musical ensembles, but much music was written and performed behind closed doors by those who were imprisoned. The prisoners of the Lodz Ghetto left behind a repertory of songs written while imprisoned. Contemplate the power and meaning of music and art during the Holocaust while hearing examples of the music from Lodz.
