    This is an excellent, brief presentation of what musical life was like in the Nazi ghettos and camps. It tends toward the "academic" with regard to structure but, for me, it works nicely because I find it easy to use within a university context. Ms. Gilbert provides an excellent bibliography and a very useful index. Her book is a fine introduction to this particular aspect of Holocaust history.
