Summary After her parents were shot by the Nazis, the cellist Anita Wallfisch survived the Holocaust by playing in the Auschwitz women's camp orchestra, allowing sufficient privileges for her to escape the gas chambers. Today, her children and grandchildren are all gifted musicians, achieving fame and renown in their chosen fields. This moving family story combines, and contrasts, their success stories and musical lives with Anita's descriptions of her life in the camp and in Berlin in the 1930's.
