I’ve been waiting a long time to tell you, and now I finally can…
HOW SABA KEPT SINGING will make its televised premiere on PBS this Spring.
The documentary will air on Yom HaShoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day, Tuesday April 18 at 10pm ET /9pm CT in the United States (check your local listings).
The film about how my grandfather David Wisnia survived the Holocaust & our recent journey back to Poland as a family will be on TV! Not only does the film tell my late grandfather’s incredible story, it also incorporates music by my Saba and me, including a song he wrote while a prisoner in Auschwitz.
“Musician David “Saba” Wisnia believed that he survived the horrors of Auschwitz by entertaining the Nazi guards with his beautiful singing voice. Join David and his grandson Avi Wisnia as the pair embark on a journey exploring the mystery of Saba’s past.” Directed by Sara Taksler, and produced by Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton.
We are so proud and honored to be able to share this family story with all of you, with everyone, and we hope you will tune in for this special event.
