Life After Anne Frank

Berthe Meijer (b. April 21, 1938) survived the horrors of Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. She and her family were close friends with the Anne Frank family in Amsterdam. Berthe and Anne met again shortly before the latter's death in the horror camp, where Anne told the little kids a fairy-tale to keep their courage up. Had Anne lived she might have pursued a similar career to Berthe as a Dutch journalist. Berthe's book, entitled Life After Anne Frank is a testament to her strength and courage in not only surviving but learning how to live, helped by her work with eminent Dutch psychiatrist and renowned novelist Hans Keilson. In her book Berthe asks the question: is it possible to lead a normal life after such a traumatic childhood? She relates her experiences with exceptional clarity and objectivity, but must constantly deal with holes in her memory, created by her childhood traumas. We present here the first public reading of excerpts from the English translation of her book done by her husband Gary Goldschneider. Berthe passed away on July 10, 2012 from ovarian cancer.

The Meaning of Key: Redefining Western Music

Gary Goldschneider (b. May 22, 1939) is the author the bestselling book The Secret Language of Birthdays, which presents his theory of Personology. Also a concert pianist, composer and music professor, Gary has evolved a new theory of music interpretation according to the use of the major and minor keys of Western classical music. By studying in depth the classical music literature, much in the same way he studied many thousands of human personalities to extract his Personology theory, he was able to derive characteristics of the 12 major and 12 minor keys as they were used by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin and other master composers. Thus they become a guide to the classical performer as to how these works could be interpreted. In his lecture-demonstration he will not only outline the character of the keys but also relate them to the 12 zodiac signs.
