In the works for some time, the new album is based on the life, struggles and work of Rabbi Joachim Prinz in Germany and in the U.S. Its relevance to modern times cannot be overlooked.
Tomorrow, January 27th, is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It is also the 76th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. While fortunately, most of us can only imagine what it may have been like to watch the rise of National Socialism and anti-Semitism in Germany in the 1930s, Rabbi Prinz was there, as the leader of the largest synagogue in Berlin.
These experiences led Rabbi Prinz to become an outspoken voice for civil rights and social justice in the 1960s. He worked tirelessly to unite Jews and African Americans in the cause for civil rights, immediately preceding Dr. King's speech at the 1963 March on Washington with his own remarks that decried the dangers of silence in the face of hatred.
Composer Bruce Adolphe discusses the inspiration behind his violin concerto, I Will Not Remain Silent,
with Milken Archive curator, Jeff Janeczko.
In a new video, Archive curator Jeff Janeczko interviewed Bruce Adolphe about the impetus and history of the album. As many great works are, it turns out, this album is personal to Adolphe on several levels and even involves a little "Jewish geography."
