Very sorry to learn this about Ruzickova. I have many of her recordings, and most recently the new Erato 20-CD [59304] set of her all-Bach performances keyboard music plus violin sonatas with Joseph Suk, cello sonatas with Fournier, and also material with Jean-Pierre Rampal. Having visited Auschwitz, I can only imagine what this poor woman endured there.
