Ode to a Holocaust hero
Seeing Nazi resistance-fighter-turned-Hollywood-actor Curt Lowens honored by the families of those he saved inspired composer Sharon Farber to write a concerto about Lowens' life.
It was a dark night in 1938 during a dark period of history. Like the smashed windows and doors of German Jewish homes and businesses, the Lowens family was shattered by Kristallnacht — “the night of broken glass.”
