HOUSTON (KTRK) — Eyewitness News paid a visit to the Holocaust Museum Houston for a very special piano recital, put on by a Holocaust survivor and his daughter.

It is a story of survival and of spirit, and it’s about one man wishing to honor those who helped Jews from across Europe survive the holocaust.

Music is something that comes naturally now for Al Marks, 77.

Al did not know how to play in early 1944 when he and his parents were rounded up in their native Hungary, stuffed into a cattle car like this and delivered by the Nazis to Auschwitz. He was just 13.
