IWitness Announces New Partnership with Pianist Mona Golabek and Hold On To Your Music Foundation

IWitness has a new Classical Music category in its Music Library as a result of the new partnership between the USC Shoah Foundation and the Hold On To Your Music Foundation from Los Angeles, California.

Hold On To Your Music was established in 2003 by Mona Golabek to share the story of her mother, Lisa Jura, as told in Ms. Golabek’s book, The Children of Willesden Lane. Inspired by the life of Lisa Jura, Hold On To Your Music seeks to expand awareness and understanding of the ethical implications of world events such as the Holocaust, and the power of the arts, especially music, to embolden the human spirit in the face of adversity.

As part of the educational cooperation between the two Institutes, new the new partnership between the USC Shoah Foundation and the Hold On To Your  classical piano pieces - performed by Mona Golabek - have been added to the IWitness Music Library. Students and educators can now construct video projects to the music of Chopin, Beethoven, Debussy, and Rachmaninoff, to name a few.

Here are selected audio clips of piano performances in the Classical Category of the IWitness Music Library:
