She was captured by the Gestapo in 1943 and sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau, where she wrote satiric poems that circulated secretly and became camp anthems of resistance. The program also includes the stunning Duo by Erwin Schul-hoff, an iconoclastic innovator whose politics and avant-garde musical ideas were shaped by his disillusionment after World War I.
