Online Discussion with Jeremy Schonfeld
October 12 @ 5:00 pm MST
“Iron & Coal” is a powerful and deeply personal rock-opera by critically acclaimed composer and performer, Jeremy Schonfeld. Taking inspiration from his father Gustav’s memoir, “Absence of Closure,” Schonfeld traces his father’s attempts to create a life out of the ashes, having spent a year in concentration camps at the age of ten. Schonfeld weaves together memories of his own childhood, growing up under the long shadows of Auschwitz, all while coming to terms with the death of his father and the birth of his own son. The ghosts of a distant, vanished world, both of horror and the iron will to survive, mix with the present in this soaring, emotional, and spiritual tribute.
