JUST IN: AUSCHWITZ MUSICIAN IS AWARDED THE GERMAN NATIONAL PRIZE

The national award was presented today to Anita Lasker-Wallfisch, the cellist who survived Auschwitz with her sister and went on to become a fixture in London musical life.

‘The German National Foundation wishes to underline that, from its perspective, the resisitance to all forms of anti-Semitism must be part of the German identity,’ said its CEO Thomas Mirow

Anita’s 2018 Holocaust Day address to the Bundestag is regarded as a national document.

Anita, who is 93, said: ‘The cello saved me.’
