With her hands gracefully caressing the keys of her piano, the 108-year-old Wanda Zarzycka continues to demonstrate her passion for music even after the doctors had told her that she would never be able to play the piano again at the age of 80. With her strong will, her delicate fingers hit the right notes. Wanda is a former dancer who grew up in Lviv, which is now in western Ukraine. After graduating from Lviv’s music conservatory in 1931, Wanda was forced to stop playing piano, in the aftermath of the outbreak of World War II in Europe when she injured her hands. The piano which was brought to Krakow in southern Poland, in 1944, five years after Zarzycka’s family fled from the Soviet- occupied Lviv, was passed down to Wanda as a wedding gift by her mother. It is now housed as a valuable possession at her home.
