Dylan Fresco’s “The Holocaust and Me” relates through music and story how he came to realize the impact of the Holocaust on his family and his own life, despite his being born decades after it happened. The performance includes songs on guitar, sung in Ladino, the language based on medieval Spanish and Hebrew spoken by many Sephardic Jews. After the performance, Dylan will facilitate a critical reflection period.
