Today marks the one year anniversary of the death of Alice Herz-Sommer. At her death, she was the world's oldest pianist and Holocaust survivor.
The award winning Nick Reed produced a short documentary about her life titled, The Lady in Number 6. It's most definitely worth watching.
"Along with her six-year-old son, Raphael, Alice was imprisoned in the Theresienstadt concentration camp where her most enduring memories are of her helplessness and inability to feed her child or to answer his many questions about why they and so many others were being subjected to the indescribable nightmare of the Holocaust.
Yet Alice found a way to survive the terror of the camps – a means to look beyond the horrors of day-to-day life in order to recall and cherish what was joyful, pure and noble about her fellow man. Alice survived through music…"
What is it that you do, that you love so much, it would make it possible to look beyond the difficulties, challenges and perhaps even horrors of life and live with joy and happiness?
