Alice Herz-Sommer, Holocaust Survivor at 108 – A Century of Wisdom

At 108 years old, Alice Herz-Sommer is the world’s oldest survivor of the holocaust. During WWII she survived a Nazi concentration camp in Prague while most of her family was exterminated. But through it all she was smiling and thankful and looked for the good. She still plays piano every day, a lifelong talent she credits as saving her from the war.

Using raw video from a Tony Robbins interview with Alice in her London apartment last year, Nourish Creative combined it with archival footage to tell her inspiring story. The video cannot be embedded so please watch here: http://vimeo.com/39862940. Alice’s life and the joy she transcends is an inspiration. “All that complain, this is terrible… it’s not so terrible.” – Alice Herz-Sommer
