The opera soprano Judith Sander - born as Gisela Judith Ring in Berlin - was already a presence in concert halls and opera stages in Austria and Switzerland, when the Nazis forced her to flee. She first escaped to England and then moved on to Stamford, Connecticut. In order to revive her brutally interrupted career, she consulted the Melotone Recording Studio in New York City, where she produced an array of shellac sound discs with samples of her songs from the classical, spiritual and modern repertoire.
