THE PIANIST: The Extraordinary True Story of One Man's Survival in Warsaw, 1939-1945
On September 23, 1939, Wladyslaw Szpilman played Chopin's Nocturne in C-sharp Minor live on the radio as shells exploded outside. Though he lost his entire family, Szpilman survived in hiding. In the end, his life was saved by a German officer who heard him play. Written in the immediate aftermath of the war, this story is a testament to human endurance.
