German President opens European Centre for Jewish Musicmain
It is the first museum and research centre for a culture the Nazis tried to erase, and it was opened yesterday in Hannover by President Wulff and the minister-president for Lower Saxony, David McAllister.
Wulff, who is embroiled in a political scandal that he may not survive, fixed a mezuzah to the door and called the event ‘a landmark… in public education’. The European Synagogue Choir sang liturgical music by Kurt Weill and Louis Lewandowski.
