Musical Performance by The Astoria Music Project

Immediately following the violent demonstrations during Kristallnacht, rescue efforts went into effect to bring Jewish child refugees from Nazi Germany, Austria, and Czech lands into Great Britain. The Kindertransport, or Children’s Transport, through the work of many organizations and individuals, saved approximately 10,000 children from an unknown fate. Join the KHC for a special panel discussion with local Holocaust Survivors who were on the Kindertransport as they share their individual experiences before, during, and after the War.

As part of the commemoration, musical interludes based on the theme of “Refugees” will be performed by The Astoria Music Project. The United States has always been a place where individuals and groups have come to seek refuge and the opportunity for a better life. In the first concert of The Astoria Music Project’s American Experience season, they explore the music of composers who have made America their home, with emphasis on what it means to leave your homeland behind and start anew.
