On April 19, the Congress for Jewish Culture, along with Friends of the Bund, Jewish Labor Committee, and Workers Circle, has organized a gathering of musicians, academics, and survivors and their families. In other years, they meet at the stone in the Warsaw Ghetto Memorial Plaza in Manhattan’s Riverside Park. The annual event marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, the single greatest instance of Jewish armed resistance to the Holocaust, with a group remembering the victims and fighters.
The upcoming program, including music and readings, will feature prominent international artists, including “Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish” star Daniel Kahn, who played Perchik.
As it was last year, the memorial will be held online, on Monday, April 19, at 1 p.m. Viewers can see it on the Congress for Jewish Culture’s YouTube channel and through www.congressforjewishculture.org/videos.
