“Kids all over the world grow up on superheroes, what we, their parents, must remind them, is documentaries tell stories about ‘real superheroes.’

Superheroes are based on great people, real people, like Alice Herz Sommer.”

Nicholas Reed, Producer

The Lady in Number 6 is an incredibly inspirational and uplifting documentary. 

As the world’s oldest pianist and holocaust survivor, 109 year-old Alice Herz Sommer shared her views on how to live a long and happy life.

In the film, she discusses music, laughter and how to remain optimistic come what may.

“I am in awe at the photographs and some of the 70 year old film footage that our researchers have found. If you want to learn some invaluable lessons about how to live longer and live happier, Alice Herz Sommer is a master teacher. I have seen this film a 100 times and its power, like the power of music grabs me every time and keeps me coming back for more.”

Nicholas Reed, Producer

Alice Herz-Sommer died February 2014 at the age of 110.  She was a pianist whose unending optimism came to symbolize the triumph of good over evil. She survived two years in a Nazi concentration camp and at the time of her death was the oldest known Holocaust survivor.
