Summary
Examines the ways in which the Nazis used music in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. There were orchestras, made up of prisoners, playing at the gates as the inmates marched in and out, on the platform when new transports arrived, and outside gas chambers as people went to their deaths. Some of the survivors, like Michel Assael, who played accordion and who lost 15 members of his family at Auschwitz, knows that music saved their lives; nevertheless, they have very mixed feelings about what it meant to be a musician in the camp. As well as Michel Assael, Anita Lasker-Wallfisch (cello), Eva Adam (singer) and August Kowalczyk (a fellow inmate) talk about their experiences, and their recollections are interspersed with musical pieces performed in and around the camp grounds
