Martin Goldsmith is the author of "The Inextinguishable Symphony: A True
Story of Music and Love in Nazi Germany." Hailed as "a literary journey
reminiscent of Art Spiegelman's in 'Maus,'" the book tells the riveting story
of the Jewish Kulturbund, an all-Jewish performing arts ensemble maintained by
the Nazis between 1933 and 1941, an ensemble that included Mr. Goldsmith's parents.
Martin Goldsmith is also director of classical music programming at XM Satellite
Radio in Washington, DC. For ten years, from 1989 to 1999, he served as the host
of Performance Today, National Public Radio's daily classical music program.
