Mieczysław Weinberg passed away in 1996, in the middle of the “end of history” era, the period which raised the generation of people now in their forties.
Than came 9/11/01, Crimea 2014, 24 of February 2022.
In the year 2023, on the same border which Weinberg crossed, fleeing eastwards in 1939, people still fight for their lives.
Mieczysław Weinberg songs reflect our reality as in a broken mirror. The world of the XXIst century happened to be no more than the history’s next lap. We are reflected too – as witnesses, biographers, victims, activists, murderers, hangmen, saved, saviours, samaritans, healed, looters.
On the 27th Mieczysław Weinberg’s death anniversary and th 366th day of war in the Ukraine let’s ask ourselves:
Who am I in this history? Who are you?
Let the music of Mieczysław Weinberg help us to reveal the truth.
