The Auschwitz cellist

last tuesday morning (1st september), 8.50-9.00am, on bbc world service radio (freeview channel 710 or 107)
the auschwitz cellist (presented by simon watts) (in the witness series) (repeated this evening in the history hour)

“In 1943, the cellist, Anita Lasker-Wallfisch, was sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp. She expected to be killed in the gas chambers, but survived because she was recruited to play in an orchestra set up by the women prisoners.
Anita Lasker-Wallfisch talks to Witness about her experience and the power of music in the darkest moments in history.”
