This was such a special book, it touched me very deeply. Jazz Survivor is the story of Louis Bannet, the horn player of Auschwitz. Louis was a Dutch Jew who had always been very musical. He first studied the violin, eventually switching to the trumpet. When Germany took over the Netherlands in 1940, Louis went into hiding. He was arrested by the Gestapo in December 1942, was first sent to Westerbork and then on to Auschwitz. In Auschwitz after being out in the freezing cold all night Louis had to audition on the spot to join the Auschwitz Orchestra. An incredible story played out in the Holocaust with the power and beauty of music that ultimately saved the life of Louis Bannet. One of the best books I have ever read.

A fast & easy read, glad that Mr. Bannet's story is recorded in this way. So many touching stories of WWII survivors--this is another.
He may have been well-known in Canada but as an American musician I was not previously aware of his career.
Wish I could find recordings of his performances.

Although I read this book over a year ago, I haven't been able to get Louis Bannet's story out of my mind. Being a musician myself (albeit an amateur one) I can't even begin to imagine my life riding solely on the merits of my playing. But regardless of how wonderful a musician Bannet was (and he was), his humanity and courage is more impressive. Shuldman captures this without overshadowing it. Bannet is the star; Bannet is the inspiration and Shuldman makes sure of this. The writer is the conduit for Louis to come alive again to all who read "Jazz Survivor". An amazing tale told with love and admiration. I highly recommend this book.

"Jazz Survivor" by Ken Shuldman is one of those marvelous books that opens up our hearts and minds. This book allows you to be introduced to an amazing man... Louis Bannet. Louis was a Musician, Performer, Holocaust Survivor, Husband, Father, and a masterful Storyteller. This is the true story of a man who lived each moment of his life to the fullest. Louis had such a generous spirit, that he was able to keep his memories of the horrors of the holocaust at hand, to share, inform and inspire others. "Jazz Survivor" is a celebration of Louis' life. This is a book I will cherish, and so will you.
