Book Talk with Greg Dawson, Author of Hiding in the Spotlight

In his book, Dawson tells the remarkable story of his mother, Zhanna Arkashyna, a Jewish piano prodigy from the Ukraine. In 1941, she managed to escape the Nazi death march to Dorbitsky Yar and used her rare musical gift to help her survive. Performing and giving concerts for the occupying German troops as they move throughout Europe, Zhanna keeps her true identity a secret before eventually making her way to New York in 1946 where she became one of the first Jewish refugees to enter Juilliard.
