Silent for more than 70 years, the voices and stirring melodies of those imprisoned at Auschwitz will be brought to life. A University of Michigan student orchestra, led by conductor Oriol Sans, will present tangos, waltzes, and foxtrots, interspersed with readings of the prisoners’ own words.

The concert will feature musical pieces arranged by Polish political prisoners, who were members of the men’s orchestra in the Auschwitz I camp, for a dance band that played Sunday concerts for the Auschwitz garrison near the camp commandant’s villa. The pieces were recently rediscovered in the archives of the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum in Poland.
