The Rebirth of Jewish Music in Post-WWII Germany

January 27, 2021

Musicologist Dr. Tina Fruhauf joins CEO Dan Mariaschin to guide us through the rebirth of German-Jewish music after the Holocaust. Her new book, "Transcending Dystopia: Music, Mobility, and the German-Jewish Community, 1945–1989," is the first book-length study on Jewish music in postwar Germany.

Dr. Fruhauf delves into her new book and her discoveries about the cultural transformation of the Jewish community in Germany after the Holocaust. An award-winning music historian, she also talks about how the arrival of Jewish immigrants during the 20th century impacted the American musical scene.
