Live Performance: “Vilna: A Resistance Story”

“Vilna: A Resistance Story,” a captivating sell-out musical inspired by one of the most powerful Yiddish anthems of the Holocaust, “Zog Nit Keinmol,” makes its way to the Museum for a live performance before heading to New York City.​​This previously untold story intertwines multiple inspiring true stories of heroes from Vilna who rose up, fought back, and did all they could to preserve Jewish culture for future generations.

Following the performance will be a roundtable discussion with Vilna songwriter Kevin Cloud, producer Lisa Kenner Grissom, and Kelley Szany, Illinois Holocaust Museum’s Senior Vice President of Education & Exhibitions. The conversation will be moderated by Hannah Edgar, Chicago Tribune Music Critic.
