“Henny Durmashkin, originally from Vilnius, Lithuania and survivor of Dachau concentration camp, was my maternal grandmother.
Wolf Durmashkin was her brother and my great uncle, but I never met him because he was killed in the concentration camps. His musical abilities and genius are legendary in my family.
My entire family is thrilled and truly honored by the creation of a composition award in his honor.
Several of us are excited to be attending the ceremony in Spring 2018.”
