"The world premiere of ‘Remembering Bialystok’ by Elena Kats-Chernin.
"‘Remembering Bialystok’ has been commissioned by The Leo & Mina Fink Fund through Melbourne Recital Centre, to honour and remember the lives and the legacies of the victims of Bialystok and its surrounds and those who died at the hands of the Nazis and their collaborators during the Holocaust.
"On June 27, 1941, Nazis occupied the city of Bialystok, Poland, which was home to 50,000 Jews, and 350,000 within the province. Over the course of the next month, the Nazis burned down the synagogue, plundered the city and murdered thousands of Jewish people as part of Hitler’s anti-semitic regime. Elena Kats-Chernin and Nathan Waks commemorate Bialystok’s history in this world premiere performance.
"Elena is joined by respected Australian cellist Nathan Waks for this moving performance.
"Presented by The Leo & Mina Fink Fund."
