Carolyn Enger’s multi-media performance explores the question of religious and cultural identity of her family members and musicians considered “Mischlinge” or “half-Jews” living in WWII Europe under Nazi rule, as well as their descendants living in America. Interweaving video and audio testimony from Carolyn's godmother and father, with the music of composers from the salon period who converted to Christianity in the decades before the war, and works reacting to questions of identity after the war, the program vividly illustrates what it was like to be between worlds in Germany.
