Plot & Details

This video recounts the tragic tale of Auschwitz's bizarre all-female orchestra, a group forced to play for the entertainment of their tormentors as their friends and relatives were led to the gas chambers. Many of the women who played in the group are interviewed. Especially heart-rending are scenes where some of these women walk the modern grounds of Auschwitz and describe the unspeakable atrocities they witnessed. Arthur Miller's acclaimed play Playing for Time was partly based on the events narrated here.
