Prague, from which Czech Jewry was deported east to be exterminated, was a concentration camp poorly disguised as a "protective" ghetto.
Among the camp's few survivors is Alice Herz
Sommer, a recital pianist and teacher, now ninety years old, who was incarcerated with her son, then six years old, the concert cellist Raphael Sommer.
They tell the story of the ghetto's other life: hunger, overcrowding, illness and fear, alongside which the musical life co-existed.
Narrator Fiona Walker. Producer Louise Purslow
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
