As a Jewish child in Nazi Germany, Wolfgang Grajonza saw his family torn apart by the Holocaust. His mother was taken to Auschwitz and gassed, his siblings were split — some were sent to an orphanage for safety, while others stayed behind and ended up in the camps. The young boy went to a series of orphanages and on the Kindertransport to France, eventually making his way to New York City. Grajonza would go on to become Bill Graham, perhaps the world’s most well known rock promoter.
