A Citizen Science Project 2021
As every year, the University of Münster in Germany will award and fund outstanding research projects that include the population of the city within their fields of research.
The upcoming year 2021 will mark the anniversary of 1700 years of Jewish life in Germany.
This is, why we as an international musicological research project with focus on Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands have decided to take part in this competition and to involve citizens of our town Münster in researching lost stories, biographies, and of course music of persecuted Jewish musicians during the Holocaust.
By teaching the public about the complex and difficult topic of music and the holocaust in (online) workshops, as well as performing and experiencing their lost music with the help of our project partner, conductor Saul Zaks from Denmark, it is our aim to bring this music back to life and by doing so, to contribute to the battle against rising antisemitism in Germany today.
Please support us in this journey!
