The 29th Annual Holocaust Commemoration

Presented by Colorado College at Colorado College - Bemis Hall

The theme of this annual Holocaust Commemoration is “Music and Hope: The Life of Alice Herz-Sommer,” performed by Judy Winnick.

Renowned Jewish Czech concert pianist Alice Herz-Sommer (1903-2014) performed over 100 concerts for her fellow prisoners in the Theresienstadt (Terezin) concentration camp during WWII, giving them beauty and hope. She survived the horrors there, and spent her 110 years not only as a gifted musician and piano teacher, but as a teacher of life. Herz-Sommer’s passion for music, her optimism, gratitude, and love of learning teach us how to live a full and joyful life.
