On the afternoon of January 27, 1945, Allied troops entered Auschwitz concentration camp, liberating the 7,500 prisoners still living, discovering the corpses of 600 more and the ashes of another 1.1 million.
To commemorate that day, to underscore the commitment of the Jewish community to never forget and to continue the struggle against anti-Semitism and all forms of racial and ethnic hatred, Yitzhak Perlman will be headlining this very special musical event. He will be joined by the cast and orchestra of Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish and leading Klezmer musicians to revisit his musical journey of the 1990s from the Lower East Side to the Jewish Festival in Krakow.
