A Prisoner’s Voice: Poetry of Psychological Resistance
Wednesday, April 21, 2021 | 12:00 PM | Zoom
Farewell, Auschwitz provides a glimpse into prisoner life in one of the darkest chapters of human history, and brings to life the power of music and poetry to bring light to despair. Krystyna Zywulska was a Polish political prisoner at the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp in Nazi-occupied Poland from 1943 to her escape in 1945. While imprisoned, Zywulska wrote lyrics and set them to familiar folk, classical, and popular tunes from the period, and prisoners performed the resulting songs and shared the words as a means of coping with the horrors of the camp. Before imprisonment, Zywulska had not written a single song; Nazi oppression appears to have inspired her creative blossoming. Register Here
