THE NOTES ROSE UP IN FLAMES

Through actual documents, concert programs, photos, and stories, the visitor is invited to marvel at the accomplishments, be staggered by the restrictions, and grieve at the demise of this rich, musical talent. Even when they were forbidden to play and were deported to ghettos and concentration camps, music kept them alive, a touchstone to their humanity.
