Music About the Holocaust

A good portion of my catalog deals with Holocaust-themed poetry, and several of the works listed below were commissioned by Music of Remembrance in Seattle. For a subject as important and horrific as the Holocaust, I find that music is the perfect vehicle for telling the stories of those who experienced it — the music both amplifies the emotions but also helps to cushion the effect of the horror. It’s so important to share these stories, both to increase empathy and to honor those who are no longer with us.
