The Nuremberg Trials in 1945 used an unprecedented form of evidence

the footage they captured of Nazi atrocities, and the impact the war
made on their careers. All exhibits in the Museum are included in admissions.

Lev Aronson Legacy Festival Performance
Thursday, June 15, 2017 | 1:00 p.m. | At the Museum
The Lev Aronson Legacy Festival celebrates the life and work of Lev Aronson (1912-1988), Holocaust survivor and celebrated cellist. Join us for a special cello concert at the Dallas Holocaust Museum with music from Dr. Melissa Kraut, one of the leading cello instructors in the United States, and her students.
Lev Aronson's story could have been easily lost to history. Aronson was born in Germany but spent most of his youth in Latvia. The Nazi invasion of Riga in 1941 abruptly interrupted his study of the cello. Aronson spent four years in ghettos and concentration camps before he was liberated, but he lost 25 family members during the Holocaust, including his parents. After moving to the United States, Aronson spent almost 20 years with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra before teaching cello at Baylor University and SMU.
Free. Admission fees for Museum exhibits apply. No RSVP required.
