The more we endured, the stronger our will to live became. This was our resistance against the degradation.
David Newman’s gifts as a musician and a teacher carry him through years of brutality during the war. Torn from his family in Poland and deported for forced labour at Skarżysko-Kamienna, David battles desperation and the mounting death toll by writing songs, poems and satires about life in the camp. Later, in the infamous Buchenwald camp, the resistance recruits him for a clandestine initiative to protect the Jewish children there. With his soulful songs and his lessons for the children, David is able to rouse a chorus of hope, both in himself and those around him.
