Born in Prague in 1903, Alice Herz-Sommer was a concert pianist celebrated throughout Europe when the Nazis occupied Czechoslovakia and her world collapsed. Her mother was sent to a concentration camp, never to be seen again, and she, her husband and her infant son were deported to Theresienstadt. This book tells her remarkable story, an inspiring testament to the power of music, courage and a mother's love to triumph over the most appalling barbarism.
