The "Night" Holocaust Project
“The Holocaust must remind us: We must put a stop to the Hate that is simmering in the world… because it can only lead to further genocides!"
The ‘Night’ Holocaust Project is dedicated to educating young high school and college students about the dangers of antisemitism, as well as all forms of hate – by bringing these young people to confront the horrors of the Holocaust, as experienced and memorialized by the late Elie Wiesel.
The 'Night' Holocaust Project represents an endeavor to amplify the very human memoir of the late Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Elie Wiesel (1928-2016) - a fifteen-year-old survivor of the Auschwitz death camps - with the amazing music of Leib Glantz (1898-1964) - considered worldwide as one of the greatest cantors and composers of Jewish music.
The classical music of the Night Concert has been orchestrated by the American composer and orchestrator Joseph Ness (Hartford, Connecticut) from the liturgical music composed by Leib Glantz.
The World Premiere of the ‘Night’ Holocaust event took place in Kaliningrad, Russia, at the famous Kaliningrad Dome, on January 27, 2019 -- the United Nation’s International Day of Holocaust Remembrance.
The second ‘Night’ concert took place at the beautiful St. Johns Church in Vilnius, Lithuania, on January 29, 2019.
