Leading mezzo soprana Anne Sofie von Otter plans to sing in Israel in October. von Otter releaasd a CD of songs composed in the Nazi concentation camp at Theresienstadt. She wrote ““The Terezín concentration camp was hell. There was overcrowding, disease and depression.. But, extraordinarily, the inmates were allowed to perform music there.” Much like Gaza in many ways one would say, except the Israelis ban the import of musical instruments into Gaza.
