The 2017 Karsh Symposium took place at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in May.

Inspired by Memory Unearthed: The Lodz Ghetto Photographs of Henryk Ross, join us to discuss how humankind responds in remarkable ways in the face of adversity.

Author and classical music host Martin Goldsmith tells of his family’s experiences as Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. Bosnian refugee Jasmina Cesic recounts her survival and recovery during a brutal civil war. And psychologist Rachel Yehuda speaks on the complexities of working with those who have experienced trauma.

Including special performances by New England Conservatory’s Eunghee Cho on cello and Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band.
