The Lady in Number 6

Last night on Maori TV I watched one of the most inspiring movies I've seen in a long time:
The Lady in Number 6. "The Lady in Number 6 is one of the most inspirational and uplifting stories of the year.  As the world’s oldest pianist and holocaust survivor, 109 year-old Alice Herz Sommer shares her views on how to live a long and happy life. She discusses music, laughter and how to remain optimistic come what may. The film features beautiful photographs and rare film footage that truly brings Alice’s extraordinary story to life." Quoted from the website highlighted above.

You can see short clips from the movie on the website highlighted above, and on You Tube there are longer segments of 12 minutes and 38 minutes (which must be most of the movie which is 1 hour long with ads.) Make time to see it! 

There is also a book which I haven't followed up yet:
And of course you can Google her name and get lots of other resources...
