Professional Jewish musicians, adept at chamber music, jazz, cabaret and classical music, often played during the Holocaust whether it was for Nazi entertainment, ridicule or to keep hope alive and soothe their own despair. In conjunction with its Return to Life Concert on November 6, MCHE presents Music in Hell, on loan from the Kupferberg Holocaust Center at Queensborough Community College in New York. Through wall panel images both poignant and disturbing, Music in Hell examines the wide scope of musical activities that existed before, during and after the Holocaust, illustrating the indomitable will of Holocaust victims.On display at the Jewish Community Campus September 20 through November 27, Music in Hell may be viewed during regular Campus operating hours.
