During my youth, my parents were absolutely marveled by stories of the many people who defied the Nazis by using creativity.
The Von Trapp Family was one excellent example of one of those courageous family who faced such difficult and nasty times in a very fashion way.
Hollywood employed a great deal of effort to put this story (and others) forth.

Baroness Maria Augusta von Trapp
- She played the pivotal point in the twist of the entire family defining the destiny of them by creating a new momentum in the so-called Captain, who would be his husband in the end, and embracing a new life in the USA with them all.
- Her captive and emotional story has inspired many young to artistic life. I'm an eyewitness to this process in my own family. Because o their story, my sister became a career as musician and singer. In fact, my family is full of musicians and singer that, to a certain extent, were influenced by this singular saga.
