Sensory-Friendly Concert in Honor of Warsaw Ghetto Piano Prodigy Josima Feldschuh

On Sunday, April 18, 2021, at 11:00 am Warsaw (CET) time, you and your family are invited to watch a sensory- and child-friendly music concert held by the Museum of the History of Polish Jews (POLIN) in honor of the Warsaw Ghetto piano prodigy Josima Feldschuh. Ms. Feldschuh was an exceptional girl – when she was 11 years old she composed 17 pieces for piano and was such a talented pianist that the Jewish Symphony Orchestra invited her to a joint concert.  Ms. Feldschuh was Jewish, and her family was interned in the Warsaw Ghetto where Josima died of tuberculosis on April 21, 1943 – on the third day of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.  You can find out more about Josima here. This sensory-friendly online concert is part of a family-oriented series of music events presented by the POLIN Museum, a longtime partner of the U.S. Embassy.  Everyone who enjoys music is invited. The concert is tailored to the needs of children diagnosed with autism, and during the concert young music lovers may need the following:  a thread (or a string), beads (or pasta that can be threaded on a string), and a scarf (or a shawl, behind which you can hide your face).  During the concert you will be introduced to Josima’s works through the talents of the exceptional pianist Emilia Sitarz – winner of the Polityka’s Passport and member of the Kwadrofonik and Lutosławski Piano Duo.  You can watch the concert’s premiere on Sunday April 18th at 11:00 CET on POLIN Museum’s YouTube or Facebook profiles.
