For those of you interested in learning more about the ghettos we briefly discussed in conjunction with the Lori Laitman songs, here are some links:
Ghettos in Europe are discussed here.
The Warsaw ghetto uprising is here.
The Nazis took over the entire country of Poland in the space of one month. The Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, which encompassed only 1.3 square miles, were able to resist Nazi deportation for the same amount of time.

Our last two opera meetings will be Tuesday, 4/24 (in HRH) and Thursday, 4/26 (in the Choral Room). Both are required for those registered for opera, and anyone interested in being part of the opera in the fall is more than invited to Thursday's meeting. We'll discuss options for the opera selection, as well as auditions.
