The Moshe Kraus Project

The project tells the story of Cantor Moshe Kraus, a Hungarian musical child prodigy, Chazzan, and storyteller. Cantor Kraus’ beautiful voice and reservoir of Jewish songs and stories helped him survive the Bor labour camp in Yugoslavia and the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany. On countless occasions, he kept and restored the hopes of many during the Holocaust and afterward in Israel, Antwerp, Johannesburg, and Ottawa.
