    "An Auschwitz survivor who said music helped to keep her alive in the Nazi death camp and later dedicated her life to fighting racism in Germany has died at age 96.
    Esther Bejarano died peacefully in the early hours of Saturday at the Jewish Hospital in Hambury, according to German news agency dpa. A cause of death was not given.
    As a teenager, Bejarano was sent to Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland in 1943, before later being transferred to Ravensbrueck concentration camp and surviving a death march at the end of the war.
    After the Holocaust, Bejarano emigrated to Israel and married Nissim Bejarano. The couple had two children, Edna and Joram, before they returned to Germany in 1960, where she continued to fight against racism and discrimination.|
