Cry, My Heart, Cry

Songs from Testimonies in the Fortunoff Video Archive, Vol. 2

The placement of song within Holocaust testimonies speaks to music’s power, even in the face of oppression, tyranny, and murder. The songs give insight into the wartime experiences of the survivors who sing them and offer a glimpse of the multilingual diversity of their experiences. In 2018, D. Zisl Slepovitch began production of an album of songs drawn from testimonies of the Fortunoff Video Archive at Yale University: Where Is Our Homeland? The Archive and Slepovitch are now releasing Cry, My Heart, Cry: Songs from Testimonies in the Fortunoff Video Archive, Vol. 2, featuring arrangements of 13 additional works. Join us to celebrate this release with performances and a live digital discussion with the musicians.
