Summary
At 107 years old, Alice Herz-Sommer is the world's oldest Holocaust survivor and also the oldest concert pianist. Despite the tragedies and horrors she witnessed in her years in the Theresienstadt concentration camp, she has wasted no time on bitterness toward her oppressors and instead has lived every day as if it were a gift. She takes daily walks and continues to practice piano religiously. Author Caroline Stoessinger draws profound lessons from Alice's experience that can be meaningfully translated to a contemporary reader's daily life
