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.
