    An Interview with Holocaust Survivor Werner Reich: Magic in the Death Camp

    Werner Reich was captured and imprisoned when he was 15 years old and spent time in three different concentration camps. While at Auschwitz, he saw a magician--the Great Nivelli--do a card trick, and this spawned a lifelong interest in magic. Werner joins magician, author, and entrepreneur Joshua Jay onstage for an interview about his unbelievable and harrowing time at Auschwitz, and the magic that helped him get through it and past it.
