Anita Lasker-Wallfisch says playing the cello saved her life
In a HardTalk Extra interview screened on 27 January -- the sixtieth anniversary of the Auschwitz liberation -- Mishal Husain spoke to Anita Lasker-Wallfisch about surviving the Holocaust and what came after.

Anita Lasker-Wallfisch was just eighteen when she arrived at the gates of Auschwitz.

Against the odds, she survived the notorious death camp, where over a million Jews lost their lives.

In a remarkable twist of fate, she was saved by her ability to play the cello, gaining her a place in the camp's orchestra.

On the sixtieth anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, has she come to terms with the legacy of the Holocaust?

HARDtalk Extra can be seen on Fridays on BBC World at 04:30 GMT, 11:30 GMT, 15:30 GMT, 19:30 GMT and 00:30 GMT.

It can also be seen on BBC News 24 at 04:30 and 23:30
