A CENTURY OF WISDOM: Lessons from the Life of Alice Herz-Sommer, the World's Oldest Living Holocaust Survivor
A concert pianist and producer of the televised dedication of the Schindler violin at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, Stoessinger shares the inspiring story of 108-year old survivor Sommer. As eyewitness to both the horrors of WWII and the joyous birth of the Jewish State, Sommer, a pianist herself, continues to play every day and celebrate her determination to find goodness in life.
