About The Event
A generation has been darkened by the Holocaust’s long shadow. Many of
us have embarked on a quest to learn about our history, often to uncover
and make meaning of a fraught upbringing and its effects. Learn how
Janet Horvath has unearthed the story of her family, exploring truths of
the past and discovering relatives who were once unknown.

She earned her master’s degree in music performance >from Indiana
University. Since leaving the orchestra in 2010, she has focused on
writing, completing her MFA in creative writing >from Hamline University.

her parents' experiences, their return to life, of human resilience, and
music's life-bringing and healing power.
