Music of Remembrance

Music of Remembrance (MOR) fills a unique spiritual and cultural rôle in Seattle and throughout the world by remembering Holocaust musicians and their art through musical performances, educational programs, musical recordings, and commissions of new works.

It is well-known that the Nazi regime banned performances of music by living and historical Jewish composers, and by many others they deemed degenerate. Amid the horrors, there were courageous musicians who dared to create—even imprisoned in the ghettos and camps. It is a priceless gift that much of this music has survived as moral and artistic defiance in the face of catastrophe.

The Music of Remembrance mission is not religious, nor is its scope limited to Jewish music. Although the Holocaust was primarily an assault on Jewish people and culture, others suffered as well in what was history’s most potent instance of totalitarian suppression of intellectual and creative work. Musicians’ resistance took many forms, and crossed many national and religious boundaries. So that their resistance was not in vain, we remember these musicians by preserving and performing their music. Thus we can share in the transformative power of music to move us from the depths of human suffering to the healing beauty of hope and renewal.
