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. This is a remarkable story of one woman's experience in courage and survival.
