'Alice Dancing Under the Gallows'

A new documentary about the remarkable Alice Sommer Herz is coming out early next year. Alice, the world's oldest Holocaust survivor, is about to celebrate her 107th birthday. "Music is God," she says. And after her experiences at the extremities of human nature, you know she is right. Please watch the trailer. (Her friend Anita, also interviewed in the film, is the cellist Anita Lasker Wallfisch.)
