Symphony for the city of the deadBy M.T. Anderson

In September 1941 German troops surrounded Leningrad in a siege that would last for nearly three years. This is the story of that siege. Of how the people inside came to know desperation. And how one symphony, played by musicians on the brink of death, poured hope (life) through the streets with their music.

This is a haunting nonfiction read that will stay with you for a long time.
