HV Special: Shoah (Holocaust Remembrance)

From Hearing Voices | Part of the Hearing Voices series | 01:00:00

Special For Yom HaShoah- Holocaust Memorial Week

Menstand150_small "Shoah" is Hebrew for whirlwind, complete destruction." --Rabbi Samual Cohen This year Holocaust Memorial Week- Days of Remembrance is May 1-8, and Yom HaShoah- Holocaust Remembrance Day is May 5. To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the camps' liberation (March-June 1945), (((HearingVoices))) offers the special Shoah, A Holocaust Memorial in two versions: a half-hour and an hour program. Both are FREE to public radio stations. The half-hour features: "Descended from the Holocaust" recorded/narrated by Dr. Alan Berkenwald, produced by Jay Allison with Christina Eggloff (from their "Life Stories"). Berkenwald's parents never talked to him about their experience in the concentration camps. At age 41 Alan found out that his parents and their survivor friends had rented a bus to visit the Holocaust Museum in Washington. He asked if he could come along and bring a tape recorder. (Premiered 1998- NPR Things Considered.) "Yom Hashoah 1994" combines survivor interviews with music and prayers from Shoah services (Congregations Beth Aaron- Billings MT & B'nai Jeshuran- Cleveland OH). And it documents the Billings community's united, emphatic "Not in Our Town" response that stopped a series of anti-Jewish crimes. Produced by Barrett Golding; Cleveland recordist was NPR's Rick Karr. (Premiered 1995- NPR Things Considered.) The hour version also features: "Death Marches and Liberation" produced by David Notowitz and narrated by Elliot Gould. This an excerpt from the documentary "Voices of the Shoah: Remembrances of the Holocaust" drawn from interviews with 180 survivors. (This is the national radio premiere this project, coordinated by Richard Foos, President of Rhino Records, and released as a 4-CD box set, with a 100-page book of photos, interviews and historical perspectives). "From Belsen Concentration Camp," BBC reports by Patrick Gordon Walker recorded live at the camp May 1945, days after the Liberation.
