"Mich hat Auschwitz nie verlassen" (Auschwitz has never left me)
Renate Lasker-Harpprecht and Anita Lasker Wallfisch in Conversation
Born in Breslau, the sisters Renate Lasker-Harpprecht and Anita Lasker Wallfisch survived the Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps. Anita, cellist in the so-called girls’ orchestra at Auschwitz, was cofounder of the English Chamber Orchestra in London, and Renate worked as a journalist at the BBC in London after the war ended, later for WDR in Cologne and for ZDF in the USA.
Memories of their struggle to survive can be read in "Mich hat Auschwitz nie verlassen. Überlebende des Konzentrationslagers berichten" (Auschwitz has never left me. Concentration camp surivors report). SPIEGEL editors and employees all over the world visited and interviewed former concentration camp prisoners, and Susanne Beyer and Martin Doerry compiled these reports.
A cooperation with the “Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt” and the Center for Research on Antisemitism.
