about

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 to survive the Holocaust. Playing for Time is her personal account of that incredible experience. It is one of the most powerful -- and true -- stories of our time.
