They Played for their Lives: Film Screening and Discussion

Sunday January 27, 2:00pm
Stanford University, Location TBA

Through intimate interviews and live performances, They Played for Their Lives artfully portrays how music saved the lives of young musicians. Playing music in the ghettos and concentration camps not only fostered spiritual strength within themselves and others, but often proved a bargaining tool that spared their lives.

Join us for a screening of They Played for Their Lives and a special post-film discussion with the director and filmmaker Nurit Jugend, artist Ari Binus, and host of KQED’s Forum, Michael Krasny.
