The oldest known survivor of the Nazi Holocaust, Alice Herz-Sommer – a concert pianist- died in London at the age of 110 at the weekend. A film about her life has been nominated for best short documentary at next Sunday’s Academy Awards. We hear an interview Alice gave to Woman’s Hour back 2006 at the age of 103 in which she reflected on her extraordinary life.
