With music, Canadian composer and Holocaust survivor Istvan Anhalt honoured lives lost

"In August 1943, while serving in a Jewish forced labour battalion, the Budapest-born composer Istvan Anhalt wrote a poem titled “Mirage in Elöpatak.” In this poem, Anhalt imagined a happier future: “Strolling happy friends with wit abounding, Thoughtfully smiling, invite you to join: Come along, pal, if it suits you.”
