I am looking for the Title of a Movie that came out on HBO back in the 1980's. It was about female musicians during the Holocaust and their survival. They were forced to play by memory music by the great classic composers. The main character had her hair shaved bauld for the movie. I can not find this movie anywhere. Does anyone remember it's title? Was a great story!
