We Want the Light: The Jews and German Music


Christopher Nupen's award-winning film investigates the fruitful but complex relationship between the Jews and German music, from Mendelssohn to Wagner. The heroine of the film is pianist Alice Sommer Herz, who played more than 100 concerts in the Theresienstadt camp and is convinced that it was music that kept her, and many others, alive in those unimaginable circumstances.
