Item Details

Ida and Louise Cook were two ordinary Englishwomen, seemingly destined never to stray from their quiet London suburb and comfortable jobs, But in 1923, a chance hearing of an aria from Madame Butterfly sparked a passion for opera in the sisters that led to the formation of friendships with some of Europe's leading singers and their network, many of them Jewish. As the Nazis rose to power, Ida and Louise began working with the opera world's insiders to save members of the community from persecution and death.
