Date Wed, Jan 27, 8:00pm - 9:00pm
Duration   1h

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Holocaust Center for Humanity will honor the six million Jewish victims and millions of non-Jewish victims of the Holocaust, and our commitment to developing educational programs that help prevent future genocides.

Please join the Holocaust Center for Humanity for a special virtual performance of excerpts from the jazz opera Dear Erich, performed by Ted Rosenthal, composer and jazz pianist, and two Seattle area opera singers.

Dear Erich tells a refugee story for our times. Erich, a Jewish academic, escaped Nazi Germany to the U.S. shortly before Kristallnacht. The opera tells the story of a family’s dual fates: Erich’s journey to a new life in the United States, and his family’s persecution in Germany under the Nazis. 

Dear Erich was inspired by letters written between 1938 and 1941 by Herta Rosenthal to her son Erich, the composer’s father.

This program is free to the public. You can support the Holocaust Center for Humanity by becoming an event Patron with a donation of $180. Your donation will support virtual programming for
students, teachers, and the community. Patrons will be recognized on the event page and during the program.
