Alice Herz-Sommer is the oldest Holocaust survivor. On November 26th, she will turn 107. A Czech concert pianist, she was arrested in Prague in 1943 and sent to Theresienstadt concentration camp, along with her husband and young son. Her music saved her life and she continues to play in her London home.

About Nor

I'm a creative non-fiction writer, with a special interest in memoirs and obituaries--life stories, local histories with flesh & blood anecdotal details. I'm also beginning to create podcasts of people's stories and expanding their audiences. I'm a diarist, an editor, and a political activist. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and spend days tapping keys or staining my fingers in ink.
