Composer and Poet
Born in Stockholm as the daughter of Holocaust survivors, Cecelia writes about issues that are close to her heart: Israel, the Holocaust and the people and stories that have touched her life. As a composer, she transmits the message of Holocaust remembrance through her music. Her first album, “Harmony” was released in 1990 and featured 15 songs in Hebrew and English which she composed and wrote the lyrics to. Cecelia also co-chairs a Holocaust commemoration which presents the “Spirit of Survival” musical honoring survivors with Rami Yadid. In addition to her musical endeavors, Cecelia is Vice President of the Jossi Berger Holocaust Study Center in Jerusalem, which focuses on Holocaust studies for college students in Israel as well as a freelance writer for the Jewish Press and the “Lest We Forget” Emunah Newsletter.
Lately, Cecelia teamed up with music video director Danny Finkelman and released short films and music videos based on her music. Most notable was “Rainbow in the night” shot in Krakow, Poland which features cantor Yanky Lemmer as he portrays a survivor during the holocaust.
Her latest work is “The Believe in a Miracle Collection,” which includes 8 videos produced by Danny and Cecelia.
