In a collaboration between the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation and Temple Ahavat Achim, singer Ute Gfrerer and artist Lisa Rosowsky present a program based on a chance meeting in 2017, when they learned that they both suffered a legacy of silence and grief from their fathers’ very different experiences in World War II. Gfrerer’s father was a member ofthe Nazi Youth Party and a soldier, while Rosowsky’s father went into hiding in France after his parents were arrested and sent to Auschwitz. The two daughters have transferred their grief, anger, and love for their fathers into an unforgettable evening of art and music. The program includesHolocaust-based songs with music by Kurt Weill and Norbert Glanzberg amongothers. The songs are matched with artworks that explore family history and memory.
