A Pandora’s Box: Songs and Memory in “Final Account: Third Reich Testimonies”

The Wiener Holocaust Library The Wiener Holocaust Library, London, United Kingdom

In his presentation Zoltán Kékesi talks about his work with the Final Account collection and focuses on one particular aspect: “Watching the interviews, I was struck by how vividly men and women late in their life remembered songs from a remote past, and by the range of emotional responses they exhibited when asked about them: from zest to shame, from remorse to nostalgia. Even when they refused to sing, songs took interviewees back in time; and with the songs came a multitude of experiences and personal stories.”
