Special Episode - Part 1: Mindy Ratner - The Kaddish, Reflection on the Holocaust

Each year, the month of April is dedicated as the Holocaust Remembrance Month. We welcomed MPR's Mindy Ratner to the GAI Haus, for an in-depth and heart-to-heart conversation about her MPR program "The Kaddish - Reflections on the Holocaust in Music and Words". - Start with our episode, which provides you with a backstory, then click the link and listen to Mindy's broadcast for in-depth stories.

From the MPR Website:

A dozen years before the beginning of World War II, the Nazis began what would become the unparalleled slaughter of Europe's "undesirables," most of whom were Jews. Millions would die, but there were survivors as well, each with a unique story. Classical music host Mindy Ratner has gathered a collection of conversations with some of those touched directly by the Holocaust. Mindy's guests include Theodore Bikel — actor, singer, social activist, and master storyteller — who came to the Twin Cities in June 2013, and longtime radio professional Martin Goldsmith, plus members of our own community with stories and insights to share.
