We Long for a Home: The Henry Baigelman Collection

Born in Łódź, Poland, in 1911 to a family of professional musicians, Henry Baigelman was a violinist and saxophonist. After the war, he organized an ensemble, named the Happy Boys, and wrote and performed songs in displaced persons camps. In this episode of Curators Corner, the Museum’s Bret Werb shares what Henry’s music reveals about the longing survivors felt for a home after the Holocaust.
