Screening of 'Everything is a present', Sunday 27th April
Alice Herz-Sommer, the world’s oldest Holocaust survivor’s personal story. Everything is a Present is the extraordinary personal story of Alice Herz-Sommer, the world’s oldest Holocaust survivor. It is told in this film tribute in a very unusual way by Alice accompanying herself on her piano with the music of Schubert and Beethoven. Alice was born in Prague in 1903. A talented pianist from a very early age, she became famous throughout Europe; but, as the Nazis rose to power, her world crumbled. In 1942, her mother was deported to the Theresienstadt concentration camp and vanished. In 1943, Alice, her husband and their six-year-old son were sent there too.
