Weekend watching: The Story of the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus

From the Living Strings: The Story of the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus:

The story of the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus is one of incredible courage and true grit – a vivid chronicle that celebrates the human spirit. This is the triumphant story of the original seventeen members of the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus who were transported to slave-labour camps in Germany in 1942 and survived one of the most horrific periods in the history of the modern world – World War II.

They were gifted musicians and poets who defied the odds while performing for multitudes of Ukrainians across Europe in the years the war ensued. Through harrowing adventures these men and their families made their way to displaced persons camps and eventually across the ocean to freedom in North America in 1949. This is the story of the Ukrainian spirit that never gave up, a story of incredible heroism – the story of ‘Living Strings’.
