The Lady in Number 6 is the world’s oldest survivor of Hitler’s holocaust. She is a lifelong pianist and musician and music has been the driving force in her life.
Alice Herz-Somme reminds me of my Mother, Ethel Crook. Many things interested and enchanted her, including teaching music and raising her four children, raising and showing dogs, and riding horseback. But another part of her was entirely taken up with music. Always. In fact, when she was in a hospice facility, my son, Ron Simpson, recorded a number of his musical compositions and other music she loved, and used an iPod to play it to her in her last days.
Music. What a magnificent gift. To the performer. Composer. Audience. There are so many facets to the world of music, but much of them come together in this story of Alice Herz-Somme. Here is the trailer to a movie that was made, The Lady in Number 6.
