Special Features:
Jews in the various Ghettos during the Shoah had numerous
cabarets of musicians and singers. Songs ranged from the sad
and deeply somber in response to the death and horrific
conditions within and without of the Ghettos, to parodies on the
Nazis, to the typical songs sung in the cabarets of Europe before
the war. The caliber was so high as to attract the attendance of
German soldiers out of uniform.

Our Jewish Ghetto Cabaret program will be rich and varied and
be presented by a small musical ensemble, soloists, and the
Mak’haylah. You might be led to clap or laugh or cry deeply
as did the Jews in the Ghettos. That is what life was like. Join us
in commemorating the courage and zest for life that Jews
displayed during the Shoah.
