Everything is a present the wonder and the grace of Alice Sommer Herz = Alles ist ein Geschenk / the Christopher Nupen films ; written and directed by Christopher Nupen ; produced by Allegro Films

Publication | Library Call Number: DVD-0392

Christopher Nupen's film portreys Alice Sommer Herz, 106, the second oldest person in London, a woman with the true gift of forgiveness. A Nazi concentration camp prisoner for two years with her six-year-old son, she witnessed the deaths of her mother and her husband in the camp, but she also remembers playing more than 100 concerts in the camp and likens the experience, both for the performers and for the listeners, to being close to the divine. Alice is in no doubt that music saved her sanity as well as her life and the lives of hundreds of others.
