Who is not gone is seen
“Mom, why do we have so little family? ”
When I was six, my parents gave me a very small violin. When I was seven, I already knew that my mother had experienced something so big that I wasn’t allowed to ask questions about it.
When I was thirteen, my mother Ida Vos gave me a stack of papers. It was a manuscript and I was the first reader. “In it are all the answers,” she said. I read it in one night. Then I finally knew what had happened to my family.
Fortunately, there is also a lot of beautiful and cheerful music, which makes the story feel a lot lighter. A number of beautiful new klezmer compositions have been written especially for this performance.
