In 2000, onetime Seattle resident Louise Steinman attended a week-long Bearing Witness Retreat at Auschwitz-Birkenau, organized by the Zen Peacemaker Order. Until that time, she'd known very little about family left behind in Poland, about Polish history, or the weight of her own unexamined prejudices. Since then, she has become an active part of a new generation of Poles and Jews now looking honestly at their entwined history. As testament to the Polish commitment towards this effort, the Museum of the History of Polish Jews—financed by the Polish government—will open its exhibitions in spring 2014 on the site of the former Warsaw Ghetto. Louise Steinman will read from her book, The Crooked Mirror: A Memoir of Polish-Jewish Reconciliation (Beacon Press), which documents developments in this new era of Polish Jewish reconciliation. "Louise Steinman's story is heroic in all the old senses of the word: a journey of a literal sort; a journey into the terrible past; and a journey into her own soul. Unblinking, scrupulous and enduring." —Alexandra Fuller, author of Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight.
Louise Steinman is also the author of The Souvenir: a Daughter Rediscovers Her Father’s War.The Elliott Bay Book Company is located at 1521 Tenth Avenue (between Pike and Pine) in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. Free/no tickets needed.

The mission of the Russian Piano Festival/Competition is to expose piano students to the wealth of Russian music heritage, to provide a high-quality performance opportunity, and to create a unique experience for the community. The competition provides the opportunity for students (age 5 through college/adults) to perform before a judge, compete with other students, and challenge their skills for further musical growth. The entire experience is open to the public so competing students will also have a chance to perform before an audience.
The competition is open for students to apply in solo, chamber music, and concerto categories. This year it is going to be our 5th year and we are welcoming students from other countries to apply.
This competition is unique and offers first place winners opportunities to perform at “Keyboard Wizards” Gala concert (Mercer Island Presbyterian Church), Benaroya Nordstrom Recital Hall, King FM classical radio station, local orchestra, scholarships, benefit events.
