    Wow she's such a lovely person may God Let her RIP
    Damn she shares the love of music very purely and lives right by it
    As much as she says it her outlook in life is very reflective in her music.
    I too love music and how it saved me is very humbling
    I discovered any things about it rather it'd be blues too metal I'd write words lyrics to feel happy and anything that pertained to music and life importantly I found many people like me in a way I have yet to discover about more and hope one day I can tell my message out to the world

    We saw this movie last night: 29 April 2014.  It is deeply moving.  Her belief in the goodness of life and, indeed humankind, is truly inspiring.  As a musician and as a human being, I highly recommend this short documentary.    FIVE STARS.

    I have not had the chance to see this (Im not sure it even got a release in Australia) but I will beg steal or borrow to get a copy of this film which, in just a couple of minutes, has showcased an incomparable teacher in the art of living in the present with humility  immeasurable love and passion that remained undimmed until her passing..Vale Alice…that Herz is part of your name is surely no coincidence.

    from my book – Written for Minka

    The Violinist

    My musical plans were once so grand
    But now I’m in the Auschwitz band
    I lived to play now I play to live
    No pleasure is drawn from what I give

    Each time I play my violin
    I feel as though I’m committing a sin
    They have to work, I have to play
    Yes, I feel guilty… every day

    What would you do if you were me?
    I know it’s not fair, of course I can see
    I just pray that I’ll not fall from grace
    Or that someone better will take my place

    As they march in mist and rain
    Some never to return again
    We play our music by the gate
    I see in their eyes a look of hate

    At the end of the day we try to sustain
    As the workforce returns, many in pain
    Marching to music for names to be read
    The roll-call includes some who are dead

    While they march they make them sing
    It’s all so cruel and humiliating
    Sometimes we play with tears in our eyes
    Hoping it won’t be us they despise

    On Sundays to exact some retribution
    They make us play at the execution
    With guns at our back we play the verse
    That drowns the sound of the final curse

    At Birkenau we have heard them say
    Ota Sattler was forced to play
    As his wife and sons were all marched past
    To the chambers where they breathed their last

    I play only that I might survive
    Praying when it ends I’ll be alive
    But knowing that as I use my bow
    The torment and guilt will never go

    So I ask all of those souls and ghosts
    Tortured and murdered by our hosts
    Look down on me with compassion
    For playing and taking an extra ration

                                               paul ablett

    R.I.P. Alice
