How the renovation of a house and a German cellist’s obsession led to the reunification of a Jewish family scattered by the Holocaust – with Friederike Fechner

19 February 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEDT

March of the Living Australia is proud to welcome internationally-renowned cellist Friederike Fechner for the first event in its 2023 online series. Friederike will present on her fascinating journey of research which began when she and her husband purchased and renovated a decrepit townhouse in Stralsund on Germany’s Baltic coast. Discovering that the house formerly belonged to a Jewish couple, Selma and Julius Blach (who owned a leatherware factory), Friederike began researching the Blach descendants and finally connected family members who had never heard of one another before. For her research she was awarded with the Obermayer Award and the Federal Cross of Merit in 2021.
