Born in Prague to a loving family, Alice Herz-Sommer displayed a talent for music from a young age, and hoped to become a career pianist. But when Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia, everything changed... Imprisoned in Theresienstadt - the Nazis' 'model camp', where a facade of respectability concealed the inhumane conditions from the outside world - Alice became part of the prisoners' musical community, playing over 100 piano concerts there. Left motherless and widowed by the Holocaust, Alice was nonetheless victorious in her ability to carry on and live a life without bitterness, crediting music as the key to her survival.
