Playing For Time

CBS Entertainment

To CBS Entertainment a Peabody Award for Playing For Time, the dramatic memoirs of an Auschwitz survivor. The story of how members of an all-woman orchestra lives through the horror, indignities and degradation of a Nazi concentration camp and survives is a searing indictment of war’s inhumanity to the individual. CBS Entertainment’s worthy effort merits a Peabody Award.
