Maestros of the Camps
From Europe to Asia and America, music has been written in secret by prisoners of all origins and religions in the concentration camps of the Second World War. Professional composers or amateur musicians, they left gems in all styles and genres: songs and masses, sonatas and tangos. Written on toilet paper, by night at candle light, sometimes destroyed, most of these works have never been heard.
