Moss, Keith: Hymn for Klara and Eva 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    In 1937 Herman Weiss, husband to Eva and father to Klara, committed suicide after his business was confiscated by the Nazis, hoping that his life insurance would go to his wife and daughter. It too was confiscated. Eva and Klara were evicted from their home in April 1942 by an SS officer. On 2 March 1943 they were deported to Auschwitz - Birkenau. To avoid a certain death in the gas chambers, they both threw themselves against a high voltage electric fence. They were 54 and 21 when they died.

    “A waltz, a dance, a time, and era. One can only imagine who these woman were, but with certainty they had lives all their own. Life dances, people dance, a waltz for two. Cheeky, sometimes sarcastic, and when the dance ends, a hymn for Eva and Klara”
