2013 Chutzpah! Festival presents Music in Internment
Co-presented with the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre
Sunday, February 24, 2013
This live musical performance connects audiences to the internment of “enemy aliens” in England and Canada during the Second World War. In May 1940, the British government began to intern all male Germans and Austrians between the ages of 16 and 60, including Jewish refugees from Nazism. Behind barbed wire in England – and later in Canada, where 2,300 were deported to in July 1940 – academics, writers, artists and composers established a vibrant cultural life, boosting the spirits and morale of their fellow internees.
