Aeham Ahmad: "The Pianist Of Yarmouk" CHF 18.90
In this heartbreaking memoir Aeham Ahmad tells his story of surviving in war-torn Syria and how his playing the piano gave hope to his neighburs and fellow citizens. He would play his instrument amidst the rubble and debris of Yarmouk until he finally had to flee and leave his family behind. Now he is a concert pianist all over Europe.
It is this the story of triumph of love and of hope, of the incredible bonds of family, as well as the healing power of music in even the darkest of places.
