"As the Spring, Unconquered"In this episode, we introduce you to Francisco Dean, a musician, educator, and podcast producer. Francisco shares with us how he brought to life the memories of Holocaust victims by using their own words, combining them with the art of sound design, to form a powerful composition entitled "Frilingdik Umbazigt - As the Spring, Unconquered".
The composition was performed live by the students at the University of Chicago Lab School using sounds captured from artifacts in the archives of the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center in Skokie, Illinois. It is a moving piece that captures the pain, hope, and struggles of Jewish people, young and old, at Auschwitz Concentration Camp. Told in 2 parts, this is an episode you don't want to miss.
We are so fortunate to have a behind the scenes look at Francisco's creative process. This video will be made available to all our members on our website.
