    It is an incredible joy to hear this wonderful voice! How great his few successful years and how tragic his death.
    He died in a camp (Lager) in Switzerland of hunger and pneumonia. The Swiss did not try to save him by taking him to a hospital and, as my husband’s uncle shared his room I have it first hand, the Swiss Opera singers did not want him on stage, so they signed his death certificate.
    It is so tragic that the inncocent Jews at that time still believed in human decency?!
