The First and Second World Wars cut short the lives of many composers and musicians who would have gone on to greater things had they lived. Here are a few to remember.
Schulhoff was a Czech composer and pianist, who studied under Dvorak and Debussy. During the Great War, he served on the Russian front in the Austro-Hungarian army. He was wounded and was in an Italian prisoner-of-war camp when the war ended. In 1941, the Soviet Union approved his petition for citizenship, but Schulhoff was arrested and imprisoned before he could leave Czechoslovakia. He died from tuberculosis in a concentration camp.
