Barbara Milewski earned an AB in Government from Bowdoin College, an MA in Music History from SUNY Stony Brook, and a PhD in Musicology from Princeton University. Her research, which focuses on 19th- and 20th-century Polish music and music of the Nazi concentration camps, has been generously supported by fellowships and prizes awarded by the American Musicological Society, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, the U.S. Department of Defense, the Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences of America, and the Kosciuszko Foundation. In 2007-08 she was awarded a Fulbright fellowship to conduct research in Poland. In 2008, with a colleague, she released an annotated CD recording titled, "Ballads and Broadsides: Aleksander Kulisiewicz's Songs from Sachsenhausen." She is presently working on a book that explores the musical-poetic activities of prisoners in three Nazi camps: Birkenau, Sachsenhausen and Buchenwald.
