Today's Knowledge: Chopin's Heart

This is a great video report called Poland: Chopin's Heart. It was very moving and it ignited a longing for my homeland.
Filmmaker Marian Marzynski visits his native Poland to witness the 15th Frederic Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw. “Like every child growing up in Poland, I was raised with the music of Chopin,” says Marzynski, who survived the Holocaust in Poland as a young boy. Eight hundred contestants, from 19 countries, sign up for the nail-biting musical marathon, which provides exquisite music and plenty of surprises.
