A founding member of the prestigious Emerson Quartet, violinist Eugene Drucker recently became a novelist.
The Savior is about a musician living in Hitler’s Germany, trying to lay low as the country spins into a nightmare. Then one day, a Nazi commandant orders him to play for the prisoners in a concentration camp. Drucker tells Kurt how his father’s life in 1930s Germany helped shape the story.
