One of the episodes on the June 7th (US) 60 Minutes program (CBS) was about prisoners in Nazi Concentration Camps making music: The Lost Music.  An Italian composer and pianist researched the music they wrote. The Italian composer, Francesco Lotoro, was not born Jewish but converted to Judaism. He has spent 30 years recovering, performing and in some cases finishing pieces of work composed in captivity.
