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. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.

See the New Testament parable of the Good Samaritan and you will understand why I say this is an atheist who got a BIG surprise when she die-a red carpet through the Pearl Gates. Because, unlike so many self-proclaimed Christians, she did what she did for the reason God wants us to do right: not because of `the big payoff at the end` - BUT BECAUSE IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. (Sorry I`ve said this so clumsy. But with so many self-righteous `Christians` spewing hate in the name of a book they only chant/mojo and a person they would crucify as a `Jew Boy`, sometimes I`ve just have to get up on my soap box and shout.)
