Dr. Maria Stolarzewicz
Research Fellow of the Research Project "Verfolgte Musiker" at the Department of Musicology Weimar-Jena
Dr Maria Stolarzewicz studied Musicology and German Studies at the University of Warsaw. During her course in German Studies, she studied at the Humboldt University of Berlin and the Free University of Berlin, as a holder of a Socrates Erasmus scholarship and a DAAD scholarship. Her dissertation on ‘Christoph Martin Wielands Musiktheater. Idee und Verwirklichung’ (‘Christoph Martin Wieland’s Musical Theatre. Idea and Reality’) was written in Weimar, under the supervision of Professor Karol Sauerland (Warsaw) and Professor Helen Geyer (Weimar-Jena). Her research has been supported by various scholarships.
Between 2014 and 2017, she was affiliated with the professorship for the History of Jewish Music in Weimar. She curated the exhibition ‘Musik. Wiederstand. Vernichtung. Verdis “Messa da Requiem” in Theresienstadt und jüdische Musiker im nationalsozialistischen Weimar’ (‘Music. Resistance. Destruction. Verdi’s “Messa da Requiem” in Theresienstadt and Jewish Musicians in Nazi Weimar’) for the 2017 Achava Festspiele Thüringen.
From April 2018 to June 2019, she was commissioned by the State Chancellery of Thuringia to work on the research project ‘Verfolgte Musiker im Nationalsozialistischen Thüringen. Eine Spurensuche I’ (‘Persecuted Musicians in Nazi Thuringia. Searching for clues I). The project was supported by the association “weim I art e.V.” At present, this project is being continued within the professorship for the History of Jewish Music, thanks to the support of Thuringia's State Chancellery and the Deutsche Bank Foundation.
