It's been 55 years, and Jakub Hanauer still remembers the cold stone, the quarry dust, the sounds of moans and music---and the young prisoner who fakes his way into an orchestra in a desperate attempt to survive a Nazi death camp. A finely woven story of grace in the midst of unspeakable horror. 400 pages, softcover from Moody.
Tricia Goyer tells the little-known, but true story of the orchestra started by prisoners in Hitler's Mauthausen death camp. This courageous orchestra played the American national anthem as Allied troops arrived to liberate the camps. Around the orchestra story, Tricia weaves the fictional stories of a beautiful member of the Austrian resistance, the American GI who loves her, and a young prisoner who fakes his way into the camp orchestra in a desperate attempt to stay alive.
