Product Description

Learn the story of Louis Bannet's rise in the Jazz world and how he came to be known as the "Dutch Louis Armstrong." This book follows Bannet during the German occupation of Holland, his time while hidden, his capture and his arrival at Auschwitz-Birkenau. It describes how he became the "star" of the Auschwitz Orchestra, as well as Josef Mengele's personal bandleader and founder of the Gypsy Camp Orchestra, and continues with his post-war life as a Nazi-hunter, as a bandleader once again, and as the host of one of Canada's most loved television shows.
