Today, April 7th is Holocaust Remembrance Day, also known as Yom Hashoah.
Under the Nazi regime, two out of every three Jewish people in Europe lost their lives. A total of six million Jewish people were killed. For more information see:
Here is a short Youtube video about Irena Sendler. She was a hero who saved over 2500 Jewish children during the Holocaust. Elena Millar, a pianist from Moldova, and her husband composed the music in the video. I will be meeting them in May when I participate in a master class with Paul Badura-Skoda.
