Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1943, Fania Fenelon was a Paris cabaret singer, a secret member of the Resistance, and a Jew. Captured by the Nazis, she was sent to Auschwitz where she became one of the legendary "orchestra girls" who used music to survive the Holocaust. Playing for Time is her personal account of that incredible experience. It is one of the most powerful — and true — stories of our time.

Matthew Yasuoka, January 30, 2011 (view all comments by Matthew Yasuoka)
I read this book to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day. Fenelon's memoir covers a breadth of emotions. And while, it is a reminder of the darkest chapter in human history; it also showcases the beauty, resilience, and strength of human beings. Overall, it is a deeply moving, important, and intense piece of history. A must read.
