Video of the Week – Holocaust Survivor Band

Holocaust Survivor Band from The New York Times – Video on Vimeo.

Personally, I don’t know any Holocaust survivors. I imagine there are a few around Bondi given the demographic, and I hate to think what they went through back in the day. It’s hard to imagine that such an atrocity took place less than a lifetime ago.

That said, if there are any Holocaust survivors getting around, and if they’re anywhere near as awesome as the two blokes from Florida in this video, I would love to meet them.

This short documentary profiles two elderly Holocaust survivors, both well into their 80s, who recently formed their own klezmer band.

They’re talented, funny and still a hit with the ladies…
