playing for life


The Two Pianos companion exhibit consists of six portable 36"x84" screen panels (some two-sided) plus professionally-curated display cases featuring labeled artifacts, photos, documents and memorabilia from the lives of Anna Burstein and Halina Neuman. 

Case items include Anna and Halina's travel and identity documents, Leipzig Conservatory student materials, and Conservatory diplomas.  Among the most  significant artifacts -- now in custody of the National Museum of American-Jewish History on Independence Mall in Philadelphia -- are Anna's Leipzig Judischer Kulturbund membership card and ticket book.

The exhibit was designed by Stephanie Reyer, with panel and case texts by Michael and Nora Jean Levin.
