This review is from: Alma Rose: Vienna to Auschwitz (Paperback)
Beautifully written easy to read, gripping, full of facts and perfectly timed with events from that period.The description of what was happening was so well described he transforms you to the period that Alma was in.Good book for musicians as it describes the connections Alma's father Arnold Rose had with the top of the music world in Vienna.

4.0 out of 5 stars Possibly a bit boringly written and it most certainly could have done with a better editor but the story is heartbreaking, 24 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Alma Rose: Vienna to Auschwitz (Paperback)
A somewhat extraordinary book. A remarkable story and a touching portrait of a musical family before and after the horror of the Third Reich. I did not know that Alma Mahler was so glamourous and such a star in Europe before the war. She helped so many musicians to survive Auschwitz. Her brother emigrated to Canada and was really never able to talk about his sister and her dreadful fate. He asked Richard Newman to do the job for him. Possibly a bit boringly written and it most certainly could have done with a better editor but the story is heartbreaking.
