‘The Lady in Number 6’ Wins Oscar for Documentary Short
Los Angeles Times – “The Lady in Number 6: Music Saved My Life,” directed by Malcolm Clarke, won the Oscar for documentary short on Sunday.
The documentary follows Alice Herz-Sommer, the world’s oldest pianist and Holocaust survivor who was 109 years old at the time of filming. When she was sent to the Theresienstadt concentration camp with her 6-year-old son, music is what saved her life and sanity. She performed more than 100 concerts inside the concentration camp. Herz-Sommer died one week ago.
