Learn more about Simon Laks

Deported to Auschwitz in July 1942, Simon Laks was during two years the conductor of the Birkenau-Auschwitz prisoner’s orchestra, dreadful experience that he tells in his book "Mélodies d’Auschwitz".

Neo-classical composer, his many vocal works blend several different influences: the romantic vocal lyrical tradition and the Polish lied, and the French style between the two world wars.

He is also the author of many books.
