[IN-PERSON] Alice Herz-Sommer: A Performance

Date: May 18, 2022
Time: 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

During this live performance, you will listen to the story of Alice Herz-Sommer portrayed by Judy Winnick. Her story is not only about surviving the horrors of the Holocaust during WWII, but a story about optimism, music, and hope. Alice Herz-Sommer was a Jewish Czech Pianist, a Sage, and a Holocaust Survivor. Her passion for music saved her during the Holocaust and helped her live a meaningful and joyful life.

Join us as we go back in time. The year is 2002. Alice is 99 years old. She looks forward to sharing with you, her story of survival and her philosophy of life.

Judy Winnick portrays extraordinary women from WWII: Irena Sendler: Angel of the Warsaw Ghetto, Miep Gies: A Beacon of Hope for Anne Frank, and Alice Herz-Sommer: Pianist, Sage, Holocaust Survivor

Judy says, “It is a privilege and an honor to portray these heroic women. They inspire me with their courage, humility, and beautiful hearts. We must keep their memories alive.”

Judy is on the Colorado Humanities/Chautauqua Speakers Bureau and has performed internationally. During her teaching career, she received one of Colorado’s Distinguished Teacher Awards.
