The inspirational and uplifting story of 109-year-old Alice Herz-Sommer, the world's oldest pianist and Holocaust survivor. During WWII, both her mother and her husband were sent to Auschwitz, where they were gassed. Because Alice was already known as a concert pianist who had done recordings, she and her son Raffi, then five, were rounded up and sent to Theresienstadt concentration camp, where she played piano in more than 100 concerts. She says "Music saved my life and Music saves me still."
Living in London, England, she shares her story on how to achieve a long and happy life. She discusses the importance of music, laughter and how to have an optimistic outlook on life.
