    This is such a special, unique and sad event. I wish you the best of luck playing tomorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the families of all the victims of this terrible tragedy.

    I can’t imagine the pain and loss of people who were unfortunate enough to be in the Holocaust.

    You did a great job. I hope this year’s session went well.

    It was such an honor to be invited back…
    There was no applause, so it’s difficult to tell if people enjoyed it… I posted about 8 short videos to YouTube; just search for blueroseviolin. Here is a n excerpt of one of them: https://youtu.be/LJYb0nhqO4I
    I can see that I still favor my right side ( broken rib) and used my hand more than my wrist when bowing. As for my left hand ( broken bones repaired with pins that were subsequently removed), I did not keep my knuckles raised enough, so my vibrato was very tight. I also need a new shoulder rest-the rubber feet are worn out and I was afraid I might drop my instrument! All in all, I got to celebrate my recovery doing what I an most passionate about and hope to improve further as time goes on!

    Thank you! It is always a very emotional event. The stories told can be horrific but also moving.

    I am obsessed with being involved, whenever possible, with this kind of event, not just because of my heritage, but also the stories of the righteous non-Jews who risked, and often sacrificed, their lives, as well. With the current resurgence of antisemitism, it is a scary world we live in.
