Educator Workshop with Dr. Tamara Reps Freeman
November 11 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Expressions of Dignity and Hope: Music and the Holocaust
Learning about music composed in the ghettos and camps is a unique way to engage students in the study of Holocaust history and lessons of morality. Some of humankind’s most beautiful and evocative original music, including beloved songs composed by children, were created under the most unimaginable circumstances. From lullabies to anthems of spiritual resistance, music was created and used to summon a sense of normalcy, creativity, and community pride.
Dr. Tamara Reps Freeman, ethnomusicologist and violist will give educators resources, pedagogical strategies and actionable interdisciplinary lesson plans that include music, visual art, language arts and social studies to help engage students in studying the Holocaust and humanity through the lens of music. The workshop will focus on hands-on activities, and feature archival music played by Dr. Freeman on her 1935 Joseph Bausch viola, an instrument that was rescued from Berlin during the Holocaust.
