In the 1930s, even the most popular Jewish German musicians were banned by the Nazis from public performance. To preserve an incredible music scene, the owner of Berlin's Hebrew Book Store began recording all types of Jewish music: klezmer, folk songs, novelties, cantorial music, even arias. Then, on November 9, 1938—Kristallnacht—it was all destroyed and the music was considered lost forever. But in the 1990s, a German researcher began a quest to track down the catalog. Tonight, Semer Records lives again, revitalized by a world-class ensemble in an unforgettable event. Co-sponsored by the Jewish Arts Collaborative.
