Alexander Liebreich returns to Brno this week to conduct the Brno Philharmonic in a programme of Haydn, Silvestrov and Mansurian.
In addition to this, Alexander will be attending the Stolpersteine unveiling on 20 March that commemorates his grandmother’s deportation to the concentration camp in the second world war. Stolpersteines are concrete blocks measuring 10x10cm which are laid into the pavement in front of the last voluntarily chosen place of residences of the victims of the Nazis. Their names and fate are engraved into a brass plate on the top of each Stolperstein. Alexander’s family were from Brno, and most didn’t survive the camps.
