Steve Reichís acclaimed Different Trains was inspired by a childhood of transcontinental train trips between his separated parents in the '40s, juxtaposed with the tragic journeys made by European children on German trains. Lori Laitmanís The Seed of Dream is a song cycle based on poetry by Abraham Sutzkever, written in the Vilna Ghetto before he escaped and became a resistance fighter.
