Abstract

In the search for reasons, why Weinberg’s opera Passažirka op. 97 never made it into public despite the praise it received after various hearings, one reason can be found in the way the opera deals with remembrance, especially in the context of the Holocaust. Whereas remembrance provides a mental shelter to those in need, others are denied to take refuge in memories or are even forced to confront brutal truths. Not only the libretto but also the music deals with the act of remembrance in a way, that made the opera a daring composition in the time of its origin.
