We’re coming to you from Wigmore Hall, in London, for a Holocaust Memorial Day talk with baroque string instrument specialist Dr. Agnes Kory.

In her talk, musicologist Dr. Agnes Kory will examine how Jewish musicians lived and worked in Hungary prior to the introduction of the Jewish laws — and how they continued to work after the Hungarian Nazi laws of 1938 and 1939 came into effect, with musical interludes.
