The Cello Still Sings: A Generational Story of the Holocaust and of the Transformative Power of Music,
 is available now from Amsterdam Publishers.

A sweeping history of three generations darkened by the long shadow of the Holocaust, The Cello Still Sings is a vivid, moving, and true story of personal discovery. The book contains humorous anecdotes as well as 60 historic photos including of the survivor orchestra in which my father played, with the legendary maestro Leonard Benstein at the helm.

The release of The Cello Still Sings coincided with my father’s birthday (Feb 26, 1922). The publisher, Amsterdam Publishers (AP), based in Amsterdam, focuses on Holocaust memoirs, non-fiction and fiction, written by Jewish survivors and their descendants. AP has released the hardcover, paperback, and e-book simultaneously.
