    Overview

    Summary
    "In this new documentary ... the spot-light is on the orchestra itself--the musicians, the people, their individual destinies. First-hand accounts of life in and around the orchestra, delivered by contemporary witnesses, still alive today, as well as a wealth of previously unevaluated archive material, provide a highly authentic glimpse into the period under the swastika."--Container.
