The Jewish Museum of Maryland presents a public program in conjunction with the exhibit Remembering Auschwitz: History, Holocaust, Humanity.

Join the JMM at the intersection of history and music. The team behind The Jüdische Kulturbund Project will perform cabaret, and executive producer, Gail Prensky, will enlighten us about the history of the Nazi-era group. The ensemble, formed with the approval of Joseph Goebbels, was comprised of Jewish performing artists who presented symphonies, operas and dramas for Jewish-only audiences.

Vocalist Sarah Baumgarten and pianist Patrick O’Donnell will present a number of pieces previously performed by the Jüdische Kulturbund.

The evening with finish with a brief discussion and an informal reception. This program is included with museum admission.
