The Cook Sisters: Heroines of the Holocaust - the remarkable true story of two ordinary lasses from Sunderland, who achieved extraordinary things. They were an eccentric pair: spinster sisters who lived for opera, travelling the world to listen to their favourite performers sing. Yet Ida and Louise Cook harboured a secret. For years, they worked to bring Jews out of Nazi Europe, using their avid opera-going as a cover. In all, the sisters saved the lives of 29 Jews.
Join us for an evening of wonderful performance, broadcast live on YouTube.
