Author pens book on concentration camp composer

POWER OF MUSIC: Author, poet, journalist, and filmmaker Susie Davidson of Brookline met Holocaust survivor Edgar Krasa of Newton when she was writing her first book, “I Refused to Die,”  in 2002. 

Earlier this year, Davidson proposed they collaborate on a book focused on Krasa’s recollections of Rafael Schaechter,  the composer, conductor, and pianist who staged musical productions with fellow inmates of the Terezin concentration camp outside of Prague.
