After spending 11 months in Auschwitz Birkenau in 1945, Adi Berkovits Hungarian Jewish father was liberated. He then faced his next enormous challenge.
He was only 16 years old and his family was gone. For the next three months, Adi Berkovits hungry and destitute father and his little brother Michael wandered from town to town with only his survival instincts intact and the tattoo on his left arm.
Eduard was a very quiet and humble man. He never spoke about his Holocaust experiences so his video testimony recorded by the USC Shoah Foundation was all Adi had to learn about his incredible story and journey.
It took him 10 years to build up the courage to watch my father’s interview. His journey home was so inspiring, he set about writing a musical documentary in his honour and am about to share it with the world with this beautiful concert.
The Journey Home will include Adi on piano, a 7-piece band and beautiful vocal performances.
Portions of his father’s USC Shoah Foundation interview will appear on large screen as the story of his remarkable journey home is told through original music and lyrics.
This story of his father’s journey home is one of courage, hope and survival.
