Description: On September 23, 1939, Wladyslaw Szpilman played Chopin's Nocturne in C sharp minor as shells exploded outside -- so loudly that he couldn't hear his piano. It was the last live music broadcast from Warsaw: that day, a German bomb hit the station, and Polish Radio went off the air.

Though he lost his entire family, Szpilman survived in hiding. In the end, his life was saved by a German officer who heard him play the same Chopin Nocturne on a piano found among the rubble. Written immediately after the war and suppressed for decades, The Pianist is a testament to human endurance and the redemptive power of fellow feeling.
