Object Days Dresden: Alla Donkhina
“Show us your story!“ – Beginning last year, the Jewish participants in the Object Days project have followed this invitation by recounting their migration stories.
I arrived in Germany in March 1998. That same August, I met my husband Ernest Solomonowitsch Korobtschinski, who was running a Jewish cultural program in Hamburg at the time. He was very interested in Yiddish music and its origins and he discovered songs that have been very rarely performed in concert. I’ve brought along some materials that he collected about those songs.
As for myself, I came to Germany because life in Russia was no longer bearable for financial reasons but also for moral and personal ones.
