Martin Goldsmith: "The Inextinguishable Symphony" (Wiley)
Martin Goldsmith, former host of NPR's "Performance Today," discusses his family memoir, "The Inextinguishable Symphony." His parents met and fell in love in Nazi Germany, when both were performers in a Jewish symphony established as a propaganda tool to make the outside world believe that Jews were being treated well. The author tells two stories: that of this little-known piece of Holocaust history; and that of his parents' escape to the United States.
