BuzzFeed Feature Video


My grandfather David S. Wisnia has a remarkable voice, and he uses it to tell his remarkable story. Many thanks to BuzzFeed for producing this video and coming to Pennsylvania to record him singing. The video also features us performing together, with a song my grandfather composed in the Auschwitz concentration camp, which I recently translated into English.

I have learned so much from my grandfather; and though he didn’t speak about his Holocaust experience for many many years, I’m so grateful that he now wants to share his story with the world. Enjoy the music, and listen to this story of survival.
