The power of music: The world’s oldest Holocaust survivor

A testament to the power of music in preserving health: watch this segment from the upcoming documentary “Dancing Under the Gallows”, by Oscar Winning director Malcolm Clarke. The movie features Alice, the oldest Holocaust survivor at age 106, who is a classical pianist. Her, and others’, description of the role that music played for them during the Holocaust is amazing – it’s a long clip, but definitely worth the time.
