Ajith Kumparasiri, a musician living in Sri Lanka, is one of many artists today that connect to the issues of the Jewish Kulturbund artists who lived in Nazi Germany. They are musicians, actors, choreographers, dancers, and visual artists, continuing their art despite the pressures, threats, and oppression they experience. They make tough choices about whether to stay in their countries or emigrate, often leaving behind their loved ones. Sometimes they have to flee for their lives. We are telling the stories of these artists, beginning with the Kulturbund and shows how their issues are relevant today.
