Few people know that there was a women’s orchestra at Auschwitz as well as an orchestra composed of men …
The strictness of the conductors and a musical discipline worthy of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra prevented the male and female musicians from losing their minds and helped them deal with the horror, offering them a ‘haven of peace’ of sorts.
Following the accounts of two musicians (Anita Lasker-Wallfisch and Simon Laks), literally saved by music, pondering the capacity of the human being to be moved to tears by a melody and the next moment to commit the most horrific crimes, Emmanuelle Bertrand and Pascal Amoyel bring this incredible experience back to life, between humour and gravity, leaving us with a message emanating hope.
