Recording 

After WW II, thousands of people where exiled from different parts of Europe. Amongst them the “Sudeten-Deutschen” from Jihlava, Iglau, in the Czech Republic. “Jihlava” was written to commemorate the suffering and hardship of these people, that had to travel hundreds of kilometers by foot in search of a new existence. Amongst these people where my grandmother and my mother.

All royalties from sales and performances of this work are donated to the International Red Cross, who where instrumental in reuniting my family after the exile.
