Roger Peltzman transforms his one - man play, Dedication, into a deeply poetic, musical, and cinematic journey. Peltzman’s family fled Berlin for Brussels in 1933, and this story centers on his uncle Norbert — the fi nest pianist in Belgium, until he was murdered in Auschwitz at 21 years old.
A singular tale from the Shoah that is at once extraordinary and relatable, Dedication is also a coming to terms with second generation survivor trauma and the role of music in helping to manage wounds that will never fully heal.
