Carolyn Enger is a pianist based in the greater New York City area, with roots reaching back to Breslau, now Wroclaw, Poland. Her Mischlinge Exposé brings to light the stories of Mischlinge—a derogatory term used by the Nazis to describe people with both Jewish and Aryan ancestry—like her father and godmother, interwoven with the music and writings of prominent German Jewish converts and Mischlinge.
The Museum, the German Consulate General in New York, and the Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized, and Banned Art present a stirring performance of Enger’s Mischlinge Exposé, Live from Edmond J. Safra Hall™. The performance is followed by a discussion between Enger and Rachel Stern, Founding Director and CEO of the Fritz Ascher Society.
