“In 1943, Fania Fenelon was a Paris cabaret singer, a secret member of the Resistance, and a Jew. Captured by the Nazis, she was sent to Auschwitz where she became one of the legendary ‘orchestra girls’ who used music was used for Nazi propeganda. This is a remarkable document by one of the few survivors of a unique women's orchestra in the Auschwitz Birkenau extermination camp.”
